School Tech Connect: The Culture Of Testing in Chicago

School Tech Connect: The Culture Of Testing in Chicago:


The Culture Of Testing in Chicago

In a word, wow.

Raise Your Hand held the most remarkable forum tonight, called The Culture of Testing- Assessing the Assessments at CPS. I've been to a lot of forums in the past couple of years; this one was far and away the most... astonishing? poignant? I don't even know the word for what it was.

People from all over the city gathered to talk about an epidemic of testing that has gripped the students of CPS over the past couple of years. As a person working in schools for the better part of the past three decades, I can testify to the fact that the testing is out of control. And, it turns out that the poorer you are, the more you're impacted by it, which should come as a surprise to nobody and yet it still blows me away.

I'm wiped out tonight, but I'll have plenty of video of tonight's event over the next couple of days. I couldn't go to

Some Nights (What We Stand For) | The Jose Vilson:


Some Nights (What We Stand For)


fun., “Some Nights”
Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they’d just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I’m still not sure what I stand for oh
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don’t know anymore…

Dear You,
Confession: Some nights, I know why I do any of this, either.
Six years ago, I wondered if teaching actually made any sense for me. The constant bombardment by people who hadn’t been in the classroom in a while complaining about the unopened boxes in the classroom, my unorganized and hastily done bulletin board, and other nitpicky nonsense that wouldn’t help anyone as an educato.
The difference between an S and a U was all a matter of whether I acquiesced to their demands for a pretty classroom, never mind that students generally wanted to come to class because I cared more about making them feel welcome than whatever a checklist somewhere deep in a manual told us.
I didn’t believe, then, that teachers should only follow their hearts and minds when they taught. Yet, the students always made me feel like I was on the right track, and I just drew on my own intuition to address what I believed

My Best Posts Over The Years — Volume One

I’ve been writing this blog for six or seven years. I thought readers might find it useful for me to dig back in the “archives” and highlight my choices for some of the best posts that appeared during that time.
This first collection — Volume One — comes from 2007 (and, in the case of some articles, even earlier):

Another "Happy Coincidence" for NJ Charters!

So the NJDOE releases a report that glowingly (and inappropriately) touts the "success" of New Jersey's charter schools on Tuesday morning. It took Education Commissioner Cerf 631 days to get around to making and releasing the report, which he promised "as quickly as is humanly possible."

But here's an amazing coincidence: the report just happened to be released on the same day the Camden school board reversed its previous vote and let a previously failed charter operator come back into the city:
It was the second time the board had voted on the plan, which previously fell a vote short. In a meeting held predominantly behind closed doors Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, the board reconsidered and approved the plan with just one dissenting vote.
But the resolution approving the measure left open some uncertainties. The board still

THE LOVE OF LEARNING

I saw a large picture in an obscure local newspaper about an event that occurred 50 years ago on Nov. 14th, 1962. The picture showed the famous poet Robert Frost presenting his poetry to more than 10,000 people in the University of Detroit sports auditorium. This was the last large public reading by Frost before his death, on January 29, 1963. The picture was just amazing. The audience wasn’t just made up of university students, but people from all walks of life. The first thing that struck me was the odd sight of a jam-packed sports arena with no sporting event, graduation activity, or concert taking place. The stands were filled as well as the auditorium floor, TO LISTEN TO A POET ! Can you imagine such a scene today ? I can’t think of a poet alive today who could possibly command such an

Global Village had arrived in Newark with great fanfare just three years earlier. During its short life, it extended the school day for many children at the seven schools it served, provided eyeglasses to students who needed them, distributed books to build home libraries, and connected parents with a variety of social services, from mental health care to housing assistance.
Much like the highly publicized Harlem Children’s Zone, Global Village focused on the needs of entire families. It aimed to strengthen academics and help lift children in one of Newark’s toughest neighborhoods out of poverty.
The partnership between Newark public schools and NYU would be less expensive than

NYC Educator: The Evaluation Trap--What's the UFT Planning?: The Evaluation Trap--What's the UFT Planning? by NYC Educator It's been a while since UFT President Michael Mulgrew went to Albany and negotiated a statewide evaluation system. Part of that agreement was that value-added testing would comprise 20%, 25%, 40%, or even 100% of a teacher rating. It depends who you ask, and perhaps also when you ask. The debate over percentages does not much interest me. I'm firmly persuaded that the optimal percentage of VAM in a teacher rating is zero. UFT people I speak to say, well, what i... more »

Yawn. Blah. In one ear, out the other. Some ideas are stupid but can actually harm teachers. An... more »
