I learn so much when I attend A+ meetings, I don't know why I don't go more
often, she smirked. Our commissioners will be getting graduate level
education in assessment from a course offered at University of Washington--
then I guess they'll be able to interpret the ed trust findings.
The thing of it is is the Ed Trust and the Business Roundtable and New
Schools and others all dabble in education. They set up their little magnet
schools and attract the parents who's kids would succeed wherever they were
placed, because the parent support is there, and they tout it to the rest of
us living in the real educational world of overcrowding and failing levies
and bonds etc.... They encourage jargon and multitudinal data collections,
which turn parents off and overtax teachers. The mish mash of rhetoric
between "just the basics ma'am" Bush and "College begins in Kindergarten" Ed
Trust is mind boggling!
All day kindergarten-- Shirley McCune was touting ALL DAY KINDERGARTEN -- I
shudder! There's a "Toddler University" down the street. Now that's speed
I'll try to quit now, and go visit my mom for a while.
