Leaders Urge Colleges to Expand Sports Programs for Students With Disabilities

Illinois AthletesAt the University of Illinois, work has been done since 1949 to provide programs specifically for disabled students on adaptive methods to include disabled students.
The world watched as Oscar Pistorius eased his prosthetic racing legs into the starting blocks on the track at the Olympics last summer, taking the first steps to making history as the first amputee to race with “able-bodied” competitors.
Many watched out of curiosity, having never seen it done. Some with disabilities watched because, with every step, he was bringing their dreams closer to reality.
National education leaders, in reiterating a message already cemented by the Rehabilitation Act, told colleges in

Teachers in Florida sue state claiming job evaluation system is unfair

Teachers in Florida filed a lawsuit in federal court Tuesday, claiming the state’s new teacher evaluation system is unfair because it partly rates their job performance on test scores of students they don’t know and subjects they don’t teach.

Poor ALEC! Someone Disagrees with Their Radical Agenda

ALEC has operated in the background since 1973, funded by major corporations who want to advance a corporate-friendly agenda into state legislatures. Some 2,000 state legislators belong to ALEC and attend its posh conferences, where they hobnob with corporate lobbyists.
ALEC suffered a PR setback when Trayvon Martin was killed last year in Florida by a man who invoked ALEC’s “stand your ground” law. The bad publicity caused some 40 corporations to abandon ALEC.
It has written draft legislation for vouchers, charters, cyber charters, ending teacher tenure, ending collective

HBCU Presidents Cite Personalized Recruiting, Intrusive Counseling Among Best Practices


Michael Sorrell
President Michael Sorrell increased
 the retention rate at Paul Quinn College
 to 83 percent from about 60 or 65 percent “because
we engaged and we intruded.”
WASHINGTON — When Michael Sorrell assumed the presidency at Paul Quinn College, one of the first things he did was examine what successful small colleges were doing to achieve their results.
The exploration led him to visit similarly sized institutions throughout the country, from Babson College in Wellesley, Mass., where they “give you one year to prove you can cut it,” to Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash., a school that has a 90 percent retention rate and a high rate of alumni giving.
“You don’t get to Walla Walla by accident,” Sorrell said. “But it was worth the trip.”
After the campus visit, Paul Quinn began to adopt some of the most successful strategies that he discovered, from personalized recruiting like other institutions use to recruit athletes, to “intrusive counseling,” in order to turn



Life Among the Moneychangers – Mr. D at the Education Innovation Summit 2013

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, ‘My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.’” ~ Matthew 21:12-13
True, pure education is never about the money.  Yet money can certainly help spread the gospel to the meekest of the flock…

Meet the Common Corps

We have been for a very long time now to bring meaningful reform to education with sadly mixed results.  We've tried to set requirements for our schools' teachers to teach to standardized tests so that they all teach the same thing and we've created common core standards to even further bring the type of standardization to education that we've been craving since efficiency efforts first set their sights on education back at the beginning of the twentieth century.

However, it's never worked.  Why?  Simply put, you can give two McDonalds similar recipes and condiments, but if one is serving all beef patties and the other is serving burgers full of filler, they're just not going to turn out the same.   The same is true of students who have radically different student bodies.

The Common Corps is our initiative to finally standardized the student bodies across all schools.  Over the next

SHOW ME THE MONEY

I recently came across an article about a Census Bureau report that showed Illinois saw a 19 percent increase in tax revenue in the previous fiscal year, one of the highest jumps in the nation.  In terms of state gains, only North Dakota and Alaska had greater percentage increases.
Illinois led the nation in personal income tax revenue growth, with an increase of nearly 40 percent in fiscal 2012.
State government tax collections in 2012 increased $34.3 billion, to a record $794.6 billion. The previous high was $779.7 billion in 2008.
How in the world can Illinois be on the verge of bankruptcy and unable to pay its obligations ?  What are these legislators doing with all this money ?  $794.6 BILLION IN ONE YEAR?  Good grief, show me where all that money goes!  Show me the money!
Would it be too much to ask to put some of that money towards repaying what the state stole from the 


Moral Fables: Keeping the Hope Alive through Trauma

As many know, I have started a series, Moral Fables, on various topics at Spare Change News. This latest piece is about maintaining hope through trauma. This particular subject, that of hope, relates directly to those of you who are struggling or unable to pay off your student loan debt. (Admittedly, this is a moral fable about loving in a way that almost led to the entire annihilation of a woman's sense of self). Thus, it's really crucial - don't let go of your hope. Nothing, absolutely nothing should lead you to give up your own personal hope. I know that it's hard. There are millions and millions and millions of us who are trapped by debt, but the problem - as we all know - can no longer be ignored. Rest assured, the foot soldiers continue to wage a battle on behalf of the indentured educated class. Hang in there, comrades.  

The following series of essays have been written while teaching ESL classes to adult students from all corners

Freestyle Week: How Politeness Kills Even The Pretense of Justice


Former NE Patriot Joe Andruzzi Helps Another Runner At The Boston Marathon
Former NE Patriot Joe Andruzzi Helps Another Runner At The Boston Marathon
This week, I’m writing blog posts based on people’s submissions to my Facebook page right here. My first one is based on online friend Michael Doyle’s suggested title, “How politeness kills even the pretense of justice.” Let’s go …
The Boston Marathon shouldn’t have ended that way. A moment of celebration turned into a maelstrom of yells, lost appendages, and death. The American public, at once reminded that they too are not immune to the casualties of extreme anger and hate, rallied around the people injured in a way it didn’t know how to more than a decade ago during the World Trade Center implosions. Yet, when the dust had only begun settling, many of my friends acknowledged that, during this time of perpetual war, this doesn’t change the habits of those in “danger zones” like New York City, Washington DC, or Boston. If anything, it’s made us more globalists, tuning into the deadly conflicts happening in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, The Congo, and Thailand.
Yet, in the interest of being polite, I’m not sure if the general American public wanted to hear about war-torn countries, pre- or post-Boston Marathon 2013.
This won’t be my “chickens coming home to roost” moment; rather, I wonder if we can take more proactive steps

John Thompson: Did Duncan Load the Bullets into Michelle Rhee's Smoking Gun?

Guest post by John Thompson.
The current headline is that John Merrow found "the smoking gun," or the confidential memo warning Michelle Rhee of the extent of cheating that may have occurred in Washington D.C. schools in response to her draconian "reforms." Merrow's "Michelle Rhee's Reign of Error" summarizes the evidence of an inexcusable failure to investigate the cheating and it recalls the lesson of Watergate - the cover-up is often worse than the original crime. Merrow concludes with the question, "What did Michelle know, and when did she know it?"
Merrow's report leads to the question of "What did Arne Duncan know and when did he know it?" After all, Duncan and Rhee have earned the title of "the king and queen of data-driven education reform."
The District of Columbia's policies were not only due to the kindness of billionaires and their $65 million contribution to Rhee's test-driven evaluation system. Rhee's toxicity also was enabled by Duncan's $75 million Race to the Top (RTTT) grant, and its requirements that bubble-in testing be used to punish schools and individuals. In fact, the announcement that D.C. had won a RTTT grant was coordinated with a last-minute effort by Duncan to save Rhee's job as chancellor.
We should remember the closing days of Mayor Adrian Fenty's unsuccessful reelection campaign. The primary had become a referendum on Rhee's "reforms." As Duncan's department awarded RTTT funding, he praised the Fenty-Rhee education record as "absolutely extraordinary." The Washington Post's Bill Turque reported, "if any doubt remained about where the Obama Administration's sympathies are in the District primary, they were eliminated at a morning photo op that preceded the official RTTT announcement." Duncan's announcement of the grant on the eve of the election had "the unmistakable feel of a Fenty campaign stop," as Duncan joined the embattled mayor and his controversial chancellor in a walk with children wearing Fenty campaign stickers.

However, Universal Preschool for All is not a panacea that will erase the achievement gap or solve the nation’s economic woes. Larry Cuban highlights some of these problems in his ... more »

UPDATE: Catching Jo in double talk + “I’m going to be 65!” “When?” “Someday!” | Fred Klonsky

“I’m going to be 65!” “When?” “Someday!” | Fred Klonsky: Catching Jo in double talk. by Fred Klonsky [image: 110103_arne_duncan_face_ap_328] People often ask me about the IEA leadership. And I try and draw a distinction. I disagree with President Cinda Klickna over many things. I don’t think the decision-making process is very transparent. We don’t have much in common in the way of tactics. I think she is too willing to concede too much too quick. But Executive Director Audrey Soglin is a different matter. She’s a true believer in what passes for school reform these days. She had he... more »

Why Education Advocates Join the Progressive Opposition to Obama’s Budget: Why Education Advocates Join the Progressive Opposition to Obama’s Budget by Jeff Bryant Now that every major media outlet has weighed in on the budget that President Obama introduced last week, the conventional wisdom is that Obama has proposed a “balance” of new revenues and spending cuts with an emphasis on sacrificing “entitlements” enjoyed by old people in order to increase “investments” in children. This sensibility was most obvious in a quote in The New York Times from Virginia Senator Mark Warner wh... more »
