John White’s Latest Course Choice Push Equals Large-scale, Free High School Labor

February 15, 2014


Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and his hand-selected, anti-public-school sidekick, State Education Superintendent John White, really want their so-termed “online education” dollar siphon, Course Choice, to be the major death drain that it was intended to be to Louisiana public education.
In May 2013, the Louisiana Supreme Court declared use of Minimum Foundation Program (MFP) funding– intended for Louisiana public schools– unconstitutional for either vouchers or Course Choice.
So, White had to go and “find” some money to make these two programs work.  According to this January 2014 Advocate article, Course Choice had been “largely” financed using money from a 1986 federal oil and gas settlement.
However, former Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) employee and education blogger Jason France questions the sloppy, rushed implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)– including White and LDOE’s reneging on a promised curriculum–  as a means of freeing up cash in order for LDOE to support vouchers and Course Choice.
And in early 2014, there is some playing with the MFP such that Course Choice might be treated as dual-enrollment (high school courses for which students also

Missouri bill to create ‘parental warning’ requirement to teach evolution debated

Evolution
 
Education in science will be opt-out in Missouri, if a bill requiring schools to notify parents if “the theory of evolution by natural selection” is being taught at their child’s school passes.
The bill proposed by Republican State Rep. Rick Brattin had its first public hearing Thursday. Brattin has described teaching only evolution in school as “indoctrination” to local TV.
The language of the bill makes little provision separating discussion of the specifics of evolutionary biology from any other element of biology upon which evolutionary theory rests, like anthropology, examination of dinosaur fossils, genetic sciences, disease or modern medicine.
“My fear is that every mention of a fossil, every conversation about the development of organs and vital structures, every single mention about the genetic similarity that we share with other organisms could potentially be systematically whittled out of these student’s education,” wroteMaxton Thoman, a student columnist for the University of Alabama’s Crimson White. “In the end, a lack of an education in this field will put students behind the rest of their class, and the rest of the world for that matter, in a way that they will not be able to recover from – much like leaving out multiplication would severely hinder any further advancement in mathematics.”
The bill also provides for the right of parents to inspect all “curriculum materials used in the district’s or school’s evolution instruction” before they can be used in class.
The National Center for Science Education’s deputy director Glenn Branch said in letter online

CalSTRS shortfall will require a shared responsibility | EdSource Today

CalSTRS shortfall will require a shared responsibility | EdSource Today:



Rob-Bonta156x205
Assemblymember Rob Bonta
The California Teachers Retirement System, or CalSTRS, is facing a significant unfunded liability with respect to its Defined Benefit Program. CalSTRS has a shortfall in funding of approximately $71 billion and will run out of funding for the program by 2046 if no changes occur. If this happens, it hurts hard=working teachers in our state as well as taxpayers and our education system.
The best solution to fix the shortfall is one which is fair to all stakeholders involved: school districts, the state, and teachers. I committed along with the Speaker of the Assembly and the Assembly Democratic Caucus to push to implement a permanent ongoing solution to the funding shortfall in CalSTRS this year.
As chair of the Assembly Committee on Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security, I will begin this process next week by having the first of a series of hearings on Wednesday, Feb. 19.
This first hearing – “Addressing the California State Teachers’ Retirement System’s Long-Term funding Needs” – will build upon a joint hearing my committee held last year with the Senate by updating and re-evaluating the information we received and getting the current perspectives on the issue from the various stakeholder groups, including representatives from CalSTRS, the California Teachers Association, and the Association of California School Administrators.
Future hearings will focus on the significant issues that must be resolved before a solution can be reached, such as the impact employer increases will have on Proposition 98 funding and how the

IL Teachers’ Union gives $1/4 Million to ALEC Chairman. Betrayal or Incompetence? | Reclaim Reform:



IL Teachers’ Union gives $1/4 Million to ALEC Chairman. Betrayal or Incompetence?

Handing the Illinois Chairman of ALEC, Kirk Dillard, a quarter of a million dollars is the single most debilitating blow to active and retired teacher morale that any public employee union could deliver. His Illinois Education Association gubernatorial endorsement is contemptible.
Dillard and Klickna
For IEA President Cinda Klickna and the IEA board to do this is unjustifiable and indefensible. (The smirk on Dillard’s face as Klickna endorses him says it all.)
If that same amount of money and proportionate amounts from other state employee unions had been contributed to any other potential candidate earlier than this, public employees would be far better off.
Who could have foreseen that there would be a gubernatorial election in November?Who could have foreseen that there would be a primary election in March? Who could have foreseen that the super-majority Democrats would run an anti-union, anti-pension incumbent who has repeatedly stated that he was “put on God’s Earth” to cut pensions in spite of the Illinois Constitution and contract laws? Who could have foreseen that the major Republican candidates would be a Tea Party billionaire and a mere millionaire who is the IL Chairman of the American Legislative Exchange Council,
