Another well-written explanation of Common Core and from whence it came. Excerpt from article by Alan Singer: A lot of money was to be made by the testing industry thanks to Presidents Bush and Obama. As the Wall Street Journal and the Thomas Fordham Institute explained, the national cost for compliance with the Common Core standards would be between $1 billion to $8 billion and the profits would go almost directly to publishers. Peter Cohen, CEO of Pearson's K-12 division, virtually jumped for joy exclaiming, "It's a really big deal. The Common Core standards are affecting literally every part of the business we're involved in." In an annual report to investors, Pearson highlighted how it provides tests to twenty-three states and also developed the online application for Common Core mandated assessments in a total of forty-five states. James Mason, a PARCC state leader who helped negotiate the contract with Pearson, told Education Week that depending on a "number of factors," the Pearson contract with PA ...

This article appeared in Education Week. While it is sad that complete Hispanic history is not taught in civil rights history, at least some things are taught. The civil rights of the multiracial population is never taught. -Susan Hispanics Are Forgotten in Civil Rights History Whenever civil rights has been covered in history class, or when I've seen a documentary or read an article concerning such, I have always been very aware of what is missing, and it is something that I am interested in and looking for. As an American of Hispanic descent, I never see any information related to my ethnicity's cause for civil rights. Where is the plight of Hispanics represented in the civil rights discussion and history of the United States? In my household, I have heard the stories from older relatives about the treatment of Mexican-Americans in Texas in the 1900s. From what has been relayed to me, it was not much different from how black Americans were treated in Mississippi. Through my parents, I have heard of sch ...

Education Week, April 29, 2014 "Today's top college students tend to see teaching as a profession for "average" individuals that simply doesn't pay enough, and one that has seen its prestige decline over the last few years, according to a poll and related policy analysis released today by Third Way, a centrist think tank …" My comment, posted on edweek website: Not mentioned is the fact that there has been a consistent anti-teacher campaign for the last few decades, including prominent politicians, even though all data shows American teachers are very good: When poverty is controlled, American students rank at the top of the world on international tests. The suspicion is that denigration of teachers will ease the way for teaching to be reduced to a part-time profession, with more technology in the classroom (e.g. Teach for America, flipped classrooms, more calls for teacher evaluation, attacks on schools of education and teachers' unions), and more profits for the technology and publishing companies. Th ...
"Resistance to the Common Core Mounts: Critics span the political spectrum, from tea partyers to union leaders" (Education Week - April 21, 2014) [New York State Education in the News] EXCERPT: The newer strain of resistance to the Common Core coming from teachers' unions isn't necessarily opposition to the standards themselves. Rather, it's based on the notion that teachers and schools haven't received adequate time, the proper training, financial resources, curricula, and other support from state governments, districts, and others to successfully bring the standards into their classrooms. Without a significant shift, so the argument goes, using new state tests based on the standards to evaluate both educators and schools will destroy any benefits the standards might have otherwise provided, while damaging both teachers and the teaching profession. That position was crystallized in the legislation approved in March by the New York Assembly. The measure would require a two-year delay in using common-core ...

chneider to Florida Parents: The Jeb Bush “Miracle” Is a Sham NC Charter Warned Due to Low Enrollments » Understanding the Propaganda Campaign Against Public Education By dianeravitch March 11, 2014 // 45 A few years ago, when I was blogging at Education Week with Deborah Meier, a reader introduced the term FUD. I had never heard of it. It is a marketing technique used in business and politics to harm your competition. The term and its history can be found on Wikipedia. FUD stands for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. The reader said that those who were trying to create a market-based system to replace public education were using FUD to undermine public confidence in public education. They were selling the false narrative that our public schools are obsolete and failing. This insight inspired me to write “Reign of Error,” to show that the “reform” narrative is a fraud. Test scores on NAEP are at their highest point in history for white students, black students, Hispanic students, and Asian studen ...
Sent to Education Week, March 5, 2014 There are two crucial research findings related to the Sen. Lara's proposal to repeal Proposition 227 ("Calif. Bill Would Repeal Bilingual-Education Restrictions," March 4). The first: study after study has shown that students in bilingual programs outperform similar students enrolled in English-only programs on tests of English reading. The second: As noted by Prof. McField in the Ed Week article, dismantling bilingual education in California has not improved achievement for English learners in California. Both of these findings deserve more salience in the bilingual education debate. Stephen Krashen Professor Emeritus University of Southern California original article: letter posted at:
