At the presentation of senior class awards (Class Clown, Most Likely to Succeed, etc.), an LGBT teen publicly announces during his acceptance speech for Class Actor award that he is an LGBT teen and is tired of acting as someone he's not on a daily basis. His classmates clearly approve.

NEA President supports Seattle educators who refuse to give flawed standardized test

Standardized test takes away from student learning


WASHINGTON - January 23, 2013 -
National Education Association (NEA) members at Garfield High School in Seattle, Wash., voted to not administer the district-mandated Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) standardized test that is not aligned with state standards or the district curriculum. NEA has long urged for the careful consideration of the fact that these tests are being used to make decisions about students’ and teachers’ futures, and have corrupted the pursuit of improving real learning and effective teaching.
A rally event organized by the Seattle Education Association in support of Garfield High School educators will be held in Seattle on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, at 4 p.m. PST at the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence.

The following is a statement by NEA President Dennis Van Roekel:
“Today is a defining moment within the education profession as educators at Seattle’s Garfield High School take a heroic stand against using the MAP test as a basis for measuring academic performance and teacher 

Chief Sealth Teachers to Boycott MAP

It appears that at least some of Chief Sealth teachers will be boycotting the MAP.  (I received this statement via Facebook from a teacher at Sealth.)

Be it resolved that we, the undersigned educators from Chief Sealth International High School do hereby support statements and actions of our colleagues at Garfield High School regarding the MAP test. Furthermore, we join our colleagues in their boycott and refuse to administer the MAP test to students at Chief SealthInternational High School. 

Support for a moratorium on school closures gains steam

After protesting in New York City for years, critics of school closures and co-locations are taking their fight to Albany.
Three mayoral candidates joined parents, advocates, and union representatives on the steps of City Hall today in calling for a moratorium on school closures and co-locations,  centerpieces of the Bloomberg administration’s education policy.
The press conference was organized by New Yorkers for Great Public Schools, a group formed to oppose Mayor Bloomberg’s education policies in the lead-up to the mayoral election.
Earlier this month, State Sen. Tony Avella introduced a bill that would impose halt school closures until a state

It's More Than He Said-She Said

Feeding the testing-industrial-complex

Published in Education Week: January 23, 2013,

To the Editor:

"Testing Group Selects Exam to Gauge 'College Readiness'" (Jan. 9, 2013) announces yet another test to add to the staggering pile of tests our students must take.

When will this end? Because there is no evidence that adding more tests helps students, and plenty of evidence


Race to the Bottom (sic-Top) and Most Children Left Behind (NCLB – sic) frame how we talk about education

Can culture-civilization-the world-with-us survive as schools privatize, turn into pipelines to prison and fall prey to charter schools for the rich & broken windows and computers for the poor?

Last week was a busy week for the Robert D. Skeels for LAUSD School Board campaign

Robert D. Skeels and Anne Zerrien-Lee and NEDCMonday saw Robert D. Skeels at the Northeast Democratic Club (NEDC) where he and three other candidates, including the incumbent, were asked a series of questions in addition to making an opening statement. The questions were challenging and policy oriented, allowing each candidate's fundamental principles to show. The incumbent, who easily thought she'd win the endorsement, lost heartily with only 70 of the 110 necessary votes to win. We believe that this vote of open endorsement along with the one earlier this month at the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, demonstrates that Los Angeles Democrats have grown tired of the harmful right wing policies embodied by Democrats for Education Reform (DFER) and anti-public 





Interim Plan Vote Postponed at Least a Week

The Board is currently voting to extend the voting time and will NOT be voting tonight.  They are extending it at least a week (or more) but need to get it done before enrollment starts in late Feb.

UFT Elections: The Game is ON

I guess the UFT leadership feels they have a good election window given the breakdown of negotiations and Mulgrew coming out of it looking enhanced with Bloomberg clearly being proven as a liar.

So finally, at last night's UFT Executive Board meeting, an election committee was formed and expected to report back to the Feb. 2 EB meeting where the recommendations for ground rules will be voted on. That will probably kick off the petitioning campaign beginning at the Feb. 4 Delegate Assembly, usually a 6 week process, followed by a few weeks of campaigning, followed by roughly 3-4 weeks of balloting -- they are sent to the homes and returned by mail. So by my estimate, we are about 3 weeks behind previous elections, so expect April balloting with a count in the neighborhood of May 1. Just my guess.

MORE and New Action each get a rep on the election committee along with about 20 Unity people. Amy Arundel

Statement from NEA President Dennis Van Roekel.

“Today is a defining moment within the education profession as educators at Seattle’s Garfield High School take a heroic stand against using the MAP test as a basis for measuring academic performance and teacher effectiveness.

Michelle Malkin Comes Out Against Common Core Standards



From the National Review and Michelle Malkin on Common Core Standards:

America’s downfall doesn’t begin with the “low-information voter.” It starts with the no-knowledge student.
For decades, collectivist agitators in our schools have chipped away at academic excellence in the name of fairness, diversity, and social justice. “Progressive” reformers denounced Western-civilization requirements, the Founding Fathers, and the Great Books as racist. They attacked traditional grammar classes as irrelevant in

NJ Charter School Circus: LEAPin' Lizards!

Camden's charter schools are both an educational failure and a fiscal disaster:
The tax-exempt status of a Camden charter school was revoked by the Internal Revenue Service following the school's failure to file proper nonprofit financial statements for three years, putting $8.5 million of bonds at risk of losing their tax exemption.

LEAP Academy University Charter School said in a statement its decision not to file the IRS annual Form 990 for a three-year period was "due to conflicting advice on the administrative need to do so as a New Jersey charter school."

Through its spokesman, James McQueeny of Winning Strategies, LEAP would not elaborate on the "conflicting advice" and declined to provide any info beyond the

That is progress.

Mulling New Truancy Punishments: Ed Today by Joy Resmovits *Teacher Pipeline Problem?* Stephen Sawchuk looks at the data so you don't have to, and finds that many states are producing more elementary school teachers than they'll need in the future.

Modern School: The AFT is Finally Fighting Testing (Not): The AFT is Finally Fighting Testing (Not) by Michael Dunn Huck/Konopacki Labor Cartoons The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is expanding its drive “against excessive testing” with a pithy and pathetic new campaign called “Learning Is More Than a Test Score.” AFT President Randi Weingarten said the campaign is intended to de-emphasize testing and bring back arts and physical education. However, according to the Washington Examiner, she conceded (as she has always done) that testing has a crucial role to play. Indeed, We... more »

Louisiana Educator: The Decline of Creative Teaching: The Decline of Creative Teaching by Michael Deshotels Science has always been one of my passions. Teaching science for many years was one of my greatest joys. My training for science teaching at LSU was by one of the foremost teacher educators in our state, Dr Barbara Strawitz. Dr Strawitz taught me to teach science using the investigative approach. That means that most science concepts were introduced to students in a laboratory setting where students were led to truly understand science by actually conducting experiments and... more »

A couple of legislators actually offered legislation to assure proper oversight, but it was vetoed by Governor Chris Christie, exercising a line-item veto. In this post, JJ shows how private money is being used to privatize public schools in district after district, without public knowledge or consent. This stinks. Teac... more »

Students and Teachers Again: Cartoons | Larry Cuban on School Reform and Classroom Practice: Students and Teachers Again: Cartoons by larrycuban For millennia, teachers and students have loved and hated one another. The excitement of kindergartners eager to tell their teacher what happened at home last night and the teenager with head down on desk waiting to hear the buzzer end 54-minutes of listening to the teacher–all are part of the relationship between students and teachers.

NYC Educator: Governor Cuomo and His Grand Experiment

coopmike48 at Big Education Ape - 18 hours ago
NYC Educator: Governor Cuomo and His Grand Experiment: Governor Cuomo and His Grand Experiment by NYC Educator Governor Andrew Cuomo has proclaimed himself the student lobbyist. This is, apparently, because no one else in the state cares about students. Certainly teachers don't care. They're so utterly worthless they can't even be trusted to grade the tests of students in their buildings. And parents don't care either. So it's on Andrew Cuomo, alone, to take on this monumental task. Oddly, Governor Cuomo pontificates about what schoolchildren need, but refuses to do any homework h... more »
