How education reform drives gentrification

Nearly a year after unveiling a contract proposal that would have put the squeeze on the 2,900-member Portland Association of Teachers (PAT), the Portland School Board on March 3 approved a contract that acceded to virtually every demand from the teachers’ union. The board was acting as a stalking horse for corporate attacks on unions and public education nationwide. It initially wanted to saddle teachers with higher health care costs, fewer retirement benefits, more students and a greater workload in a city where 40 percent of teachers already work more than 50 hours a week (PDF). The board also demanded expansive management rights (PDF) and allegedly wished to link teacher evaluation more closely to standardized testing. PD should be about learning, not control, compliance, and permission  Report: Teachers Want More Time, Resources To Prepare for Common Core.

Report: Teachers Want More Time, Resources To Prepare for Common Core

The report, Primary Sources: America's Teachers on Teaching in an Era of Change, conducted by Harrison Group in July 2013 among 20,157 teachers nationwide, is generally favorable toward Common Core standards and other Gates Foundation priorities, such as teacher evaluations. The report heavily emphasizes the positive results of the survey and is decorated throughout the margins and section breaks with positive comments from teachers about the standards and education reform in general. The survey was not focused exclusively on Common Core. Getting A Job Is Not The Purpose Of School.

‘If only American teachers were smarter…’

In this school reform era, they have been targeted as “the” problem for failing schools. Are they? In this post, Jack Schneider, an assistant professor of education at the College of the Holy Cross, looks at the teaching corps and what is true about America’s teachers, what isn’t, and where to go next. Schneider is the author of two books, including the new From the Ivory Tower to the Schoolhouse: How Scholarship Becomes Common Knowledge in Education (Harvard Education Press, 2014).

Education of Washington's students should come before corporate welfare

As the state grapples with the issue of education funding, residents are left wondering how such a prosperous state -- home to a number of the world’s most iconic and profitable companies and individuals — fails to fully fund even basic education for Washington’s children. Ultimately, the answer lies in our broken and inefficient state tax system. Our state tax system is the most regressive in the nation, according to the Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy, and yet billions of dollars of taxpayer money underwrite tax breaks and subsidies each year to wealthy corporations that do not need them. This is starving our education system of even the most basic funding.

The only way to properly fund education at all levels, from early learning to college, is to repair our tax system and create new revenue streams for education. Learning a language with the iPad. Bathroom Floor Tiles & Wall Tiles - UK Tile Shop. Mumford and Sons - Little Lion Man. Images.
