The Education Police State Comes to Rye NY southbronxschool.com

The Education Police State Comes to Rye NY

Rye, NY. A leafy city of about 15,000 hard by the Long Island Sound. The home of Playland, BJ Surhoff, andWellington Mara. A city in which education is taken seriously by the community. Who would have thought that the police state of education would find it's way into Rye?

In May of 2013, 4 teachers were accused of "improper coaching" during state exams that April to a small group of students according to the Rye Patch. These four teachers then were removed from the classrooms and put on the Rye version of the Rubber Room.

Since then, the Westchester County District Attorney has investigated and found insufficient evidence to proceed.  One teacher, Shannon Gold a 4th grade teacher at Milton Elementary has resigned with neither party admitting wrongdoing. One teacher, Gail Topol, returned to school under what some are claiming preferential treatment, and two others, Dana Coppola and Carin Mehler are still reassigned not doing what they love and are trained to do.

The worst part is that Carin Mehler's daughter is a student at the Osborn Elementary School. The same one in which her mom, Carin, is a teacher.

Not only is this an awkward situation for the little girl, but worse, Carin Mehler is not even allowed to enter the school as a parent. The Rye City School District has told Carin that she cannot act as a parent and in the best interests of her child on school property. The Crack Team finds this most http://www.southbronxschool.com:

Five Louisiana “Educators” Want Common Core

April 21, 2014


On April 21, 2014, the Baton Rouge Advocate ran an article by Will Sentell entitled, Educators Renew Support for Common Core and Its Tests.
The first line of the article is comical:
Five educators said Monday morning that they will urge state House and Senate members to support the Common Core academic standards and the controversial tests that go with them. [Emphasis added.]
Since when is this news?
Ahh, but we are in “Stay the Course” mode (read about it in this post and this post).
So, we have a supposed “news” article centered upon five individuals who want the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and its associated test constructed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).
Five “educators.”
That reminds me of the “three Louisiana teachers” who “developed” CCSS.
The Louisiana Federation of Teachers (LFT) is comprised of almost 21,000 teachers. The entire state employs approximately 49,000 teachers.
Five Louisiana “educators” want CCSS and PARCC.
In his article, Sentell quotes one superintendent, one teacher, one CCSS/PARCC “specialist”– and State Superintendent John White and his State Board of Elementary Five Louisiana “Educators” Want Common Core | deutsch29:

Mike Klonsky's SmallTalk Blog: Let's do it again in 2015:



Let's do it again in 2015

WE DID IT...I love this post card that came in the mail today from the Guzzardi campaign. We sure did. Let's do it again.

NOBODY'S BUYING Rahm's or McCarthy's claims about dwindling gun violence in Chicago. It all depends on whose neighborhood you're talking about.  Even doctoring the data didn't help the Rahm brand. After this latest bloody Easter weekend  -- at least 9 dead, 44 wounded -- the best Rahm and McCarthy can come up with as part of "Operation Impact" is cops on bikes. Give me a break.

U.S. Attorney Fardon announces "special unit"
So the feds are sending in a special unit. More bad press for Rahm in a city that's out of control. And control is what the 1%ers brought him in for. What's next? The Untouchables? Marshall law? Drones? Afghan troop redeployment? Is that what Rahm plans to run on in 2015?

Rahm says he supports the feds' intervention in Chicago.
"When (U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon) first came into office, this is exactly what we talked about," Emanuel said. 
But if he really supported it, he would at least know what the IT is. Don't you think?
"I don't know whether it means more resources, I don't know what it exactly is, but I'm pleased they're doing it."
Rahm is on the defensive as his ratings plummet and at least two viable potential opposition candidates wait in the wings. He lashes out at parents and community residents, accusing them of  "not living by a moral code" or instilling "the right values" in their children. Wrong answer, Mike Klonsky's SmallTalk Blog: Let's do it again in 2015:
