Diane Ravitch on a mission - by Kathryn Baron

At age 72, Diane Ravitch has attained cult status among America’s teachers. They give her standing ovations when she’s introduced as a speaker, and again when she concludes her remarks. They come up to meet her and thank her, sometimes with tears in their eyes, for being such an outspoken and eloquent voice for the [...]

You've all heard me say it before: an educated populace is the cornerstone of our democracy. When I received a comment on my last post with the idea that education should be treated like a business, well, my comment became more than a comment, as you can well imagine. Blame it on Limbaugh, already getting m

The Teaching Experience

Posted November 18, 2010

** Also posted here on “Valerie Strauss’ Answer Sheet” in the Washington Post.

The topic of teacher experience is getting a lot of attention in education debates. In part, this makes sense, since experience (years of service) does play several important roles in education policy, including teachers’ raises and transfer/layoff policies.

Usually, experience is discussed in terms of its relationship to performance –whether more experienced teachers produce larger student test score gains than less experienced teachers. There is a pretty impressive body of research on this topic, the findings of which are sometimes used to argue for policy changes that eliminate the role of experience in salary and other employment policies. Proponents of these changes often argue that experience is only weakly related to performance, and therefore shouldn’t be used in determining salary and other conditions of work. It is not unusual to hear people say that experience doesn’t matter at all.

As is often the case when empirical research finds its way into policy debates, the “weakly related” characterization of the findings on the experience/achievement relationship borders on oversimplification, while the claim that experience doesn’t matter is flat-out wrong. The relationship is substantial but context-dependent, and blanket

Young vs. Old; Bad vs. Good.

I am growing tired of the call for the ouster of older teachers and the elevation of the younger. I am of the older generation (some might say very older) after a career in education spanning four decades. I was also a victim of budget cuts during that career losing my job at the end of every year for my first nine years in three school districts. After 34 years, I am no longer in Public education, but I am involved with Higher Education. My assignment is to train and observe Pre-service teachers, student teachers. In that role I get to travel from school to school and observe educators on all levels.

I teach and observe student teachers for a living. I know that my students have observed over 100 hours of lessons by teachers in the field prior to their becoming student teachers. Additionally, they must show mastery in a program of courses in both philosophy and methods in Education. This is all in addition to the courses required in their content area. By the time these students have an opportunity to stand as teachers in a

Update: US teachers head: 'Something insane in Providence'

By Richard C. Dujardin
Journal Staff Writer

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- A crowd of more than 1,000 -- Providence teachers joined by teachers from Cranston, Central Falls and other communities -- is calling for Mayor Angel Taveras and the Providence School Board to rescind the firings of nearly 2,000 teachers.

The crowd fills the plaza in front of City Hall, forcing police to divert traffic around Kennedy Plaza.

The crowd cheered Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, who declared that "something insane is going on in Providence."

She said that prior to last week's firings, the Providence teachers were working with school officials to continue their reform of education but then, she said, "Some secret plan was hatched" to fire the teachers.

"Why destroy a school system and undo years of reform and dehumanize every teacher in the school system?" she asked.

She called on the school officials to negotiate.

Larry Purtil, president of the National Education Association of Rhode Island, expressed

It’s Test Time here in Colorado, and I have a confession to make.

When I was teaching, I didn’t completely hate CSAP time. A small part of me actually… kind ofliked it.

Don’t misunderstand: I hate virtually everything about CSAP. It’s high-stakes nature distorted virtually everything my school did, from the way the curriculum was structured, to how we were asked to teach, to what we taught in the weeks and months beforehand. It even distorted how we allocated the time we spent with certain types of students, and introduced the notion of “triage” into a space it doesn’t belong. It distorted our behavior, too– once-proud professionals reduce

VIDEO! Parents to Bloomberg: Stand up for Students, Not Millionaires!

Parents and education advocates called on Mayor Bloomberg today to stop making hollow threats to crowd the City’s classrooms, and instead join them in the growing coalition pushing Albany to extend the Millionaire’s Tax. The group urged the mayor at a City Hall rally to finally support the progressive tax on New York’s richest in order to protect City residents from destructive and unnecessary cuts, and to keep our education crisis from turning in to a disaster.

“Mayor Bloomberg knows the only real solution to our budget crisis is to raise revenue in a fair, smart way,” said Brooklynite Ceilia Green, a parent of 4 public school students. “Extending the Millionaires Tax is the best option on the table. It would not change the standard of living for the very small percentage of New Yorkers it would

Veteran Teachers Need Not Apply: Henderson Recruits TFA Alums During Budget Deficit

Kaya Henderson, Interim Chancellor for DC Public Schools recently delivered remarks at the Teach for America (TFA) 20th Anniversary Summit. Hosted by Teach for America founder and CEO, the event drew what was referred to as an "all-star lineup of education, government, and social justice leaders," including TFA alum, Michelle Rhee, former Chancellor for DC Public Schools.

During the event, Interim Chancellor Henderson spoke about the true power of the TFA movement, the rise to high level administrative positions by many TFA'ers and forecast that maybe one day a TFA'er would land in the White House. Henderson encouraged TFA'ers to dust off their resumes if they want a chance to make history by dropping off their resumes to her and coming to work for DC Public Schools.

It is interesting to note that despite a lingering recession, budget crises and widespread teacher hiring slowdown, TFA teachers are being hired at a steady pace. The growth is often times coming at the expense of veteran teachers who are losing their jobs- in some cases to make room for TFA teachers who typically are hired at much lower salary levels. Remember the 266 mostly veteran teachers who were laid off in 2009 subsequent to the hiring of hundreds of TFA'ers? A

Wis. Voters File Recall Petitions Against Anti-Worker Senators

This morning, voters from around Wisconsin took the first steps toward taking their state back by filing recall papers against eight Republican senators who have backed Gov. Scott Walker and pushed his partisan attempt to take away collective bargaining rights for thousands of teachers, nurses, librarians and other workers.

In a statement, Wisconsin workers said Walker and the Senate Republicans are not reflecting Wisconsin values. Instead, they are doing away with decades of bipartisan cooperation in government. Walker claims he wants to give our children the “tools they need,” but in reality, he has taken a baseball bat to their future. His budget is wrong for Wisconsin, the workers said.

“He is attacking education, seniors and working families by putting the budget burden on their backs. Meanwhile, he is asking for no shared sacrifice from the extremely wealthy and corporations who funded his campaign.”

Roy Vandenberg, a member of United Steelworkers (USW) Local 2-144, said:

Gov. Walker and Senate Republicans are refusing to listen to the hundreds of thousands of working families who traveled to Madison to make their voices heard. He has refused to listen to the majority of the people of this state who disagree with them. So now it is time for us to make our voices heard in their districts. If they will not listen to “we the people” then the “we the people” are going to take our government back.

Ann Louise Petreault, a nurse at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and member of SEIU Healthcare Wisconsin, adds:

Gov. Walker continues to turn a blind eye to the majority of Wisconsinites who believe his plan to end collective bargaining is wrong. He won’t take yes for an answer. He just continues his political attack to strip us of our collective bargaining rights.

Here’s Bryan Kennedy, president of AFT Wisconsin:

We have learned that today people have begun filing recall petitions in an effort to take Wisconsin back. We are now going to focus our organizing attention on these efforts, and all across the state we will immediately join these efforts and begin collecting signatures, knocking on doors, making phone calls and talking to our friends and family. Starting today, day by day, one by one, we will begin taking our state back before Gov. Walker is able to take it backward.

Gov. Walker and the Senate Republicans have failed to show leadership and work across party lines to compromise and get Wisconsin moving forward again by creating jobs, the statement said.
