China education reform

Unions, Charter Schools, And The Arne Duncan National School System

The uncomfortable truth is that progressives in america cannot afford not to be activists. We no longer have the option of hoping that someone else will step to the plate. They won’t. It is up to us. If we lose this country to the right Wing Fascists, it won’t be because there are more of them than us. It will be because they are more active, more dedicated, and more financially supportive of their party than we are of ours. They have been the squeaky wheel for thirty years, and in that time, we have somehow failed to recognize the basic fact of politics: The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Meanwhile, students in countries around the globe are being trained and educated to understand that success in the future will be based on who has the best skills. Why are we not teaching our children to prepare for global competition?

Start early and make it a habit before you introduce TV and video games. Limit screen-time, including TV, video games, and computer. Trade some of their structured activities for free time. Appeal to kids’ natural interests (e.g. sports: try hiking or canoeing, science: try gardening or rock collecting). Model outdoor time behavior yourself and focus on fun!

A. Give writing tests, interviews, and background checks. Admission to the college of education should be tougher than any department, after all teachers are going to be dealing with CHILDREN – THE FUTURE – OUR FUTURE.

QueenVictoria(1819 – 1901) was queen ofUnited KingdomandIrelandfrom 1837 until her death. In 1840 she married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg andGotha(1819 – 1861).Prince Albertwas QueenVictoria’s first cousin. They had 9 children and 42 grandchildren.Prince Albertadvocated education reform the abolition of slavery.Prince Albertdied at age 42. QueenVictoriaandPrince Alberthad a beautiful relationship and long term love affair. QueenVictoriamourned the death of her dearPrince Albertfor the rest of her life.

Many of the students who do graduate don’t have adequate reading, math or daily living skills to be successful. What then, can we expect of students who leave BEFORE graduation, for whatever reason? And it’s not just big cities with notorious crime rates and a large pool of underprivileged children who are at risk. No, the problem is so widespread that no area is immune to these decling standards and graduation rates.

It is an old argument to suggest that poorly performing schools or ineffective teachers are the result of having to deal with children living in poverty.

J.C.:The best part is forecasting where I grew up and being in an environment where the weather is always changing. New Englanders LOVE talking about the weather, good or bad. The most difficult part is forecasting in an environment where the weather is always changing! We have marine and mountain influences that can make forecasting quite a challenge.

Education Reform And The Economy

Consider outdoor skills to be part of your child’s healthy and complete upbringing. Learn to paddle a canoe, take a hike, go stargazing, use binoculars to see a bird. Listen to the sounds of the night, use a compass and a GPS.

What I propose is that any group of people who can articulate a sound system for educating our children should be able to access public funds to do so, so that all children can have access to many choices. The charter system addresses this partially. The biggest issues are: a) a preset curriculum in the form of state standards, which mean a charter school still cannot entirely allow children to develop knowledge and skills through their passions, and b) state testing mandates which mean that even when a school does manage to allow students choice in what they are learning about, they ALL must still be on the exact same page on the exact same day in all the tested subjects.

Lani Guinier, a professor of law at Harvard, was absolutely amazing. Her words were so moving that I had to forward the clip to a buddy of mine who is interested in education reform.

I took that same attitude into the classroom when i began to teach. When I gave homework, it was so the student could practice a new skill. If a student made an honest attempt to complete an assignment, and was unsuccessful, he/she could come to me. The parents and the child did not have to spend quality time at home frustrated as they all tried to figure it out.

The So what? The ‘so-what’ is that the lowest SAT for admittance to the University of Illinois is 1610. 1277 ain’t cutting it. The universal reaction from elected black officials, apologetic black educators, and guilt-ridden black parents, or more realistically, single mothers is: Racism. They declare the SAT is biased. You know what? It probably is. It is biased toward students who can read and write well and who take an algebra class before they have a child out of wedlock. But then colleges, grad schools, and corporations are biased as well. Life is biased, job competition is intense, get over it.

“Legislators and education officials have been paying more attention to the dropout problem since learning last year that more than 30 percent of high school students aren’t graduating. A report released in October by the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation said students who drop out of school in a single year cost the state’s taxpayers 9 million annually in lost sales tax revenue and higher Medicaid and prison costs.

We need to wake up as a nation and realize that our future is in jeopardy. Poor education results are a matter of national security, not just family pride.

In order to win the money, the states must show a plan for the money. There is an application process and it is not as easy as it sounds. States hoping to win the money go through a rigorous process. Part of that process is to ensure that the money goes to what it is intended for, helping the children of that state obtain a stellar education.

Education Reform And The Economy

The Crenshaw campaign instituted a tremendous voter contact program and volunteer ground game. Being short on both time and money in a heavily Democratic district, we decided to focus all of our efforts on likely voters.

Don’t Over-program. Kids benefit from unstructured outdoor time, where they create their own activities and freely explore their surroundings. Let them make up games, find special outdoor places, and start up projects. I remember some great organized football games from my childhood, but I also remember playing in the woods, damming up creeks, having rock-skipping contests.

The distribution of IQ scores provides some insight into this phenomenon. By definition, the distribution of IQ makes a nice bell curve centered over 100. However, the distribution of economic status within this bell curve is far from random.

Referring to the Olympics, Romer quipped that “We’d be first in the world” if Americans paid as much attention to education as they do to sports. America “wouldn’t be on the podium” if medals were given out for math or science achievement.

Education is nothing but adding in the learning process of the child. Marks cannot weigh the learning abilities of a child. Focus must be on perfection of the learning process of the child rather than marks. We have an aim of building a child as a good human being with all round development out of the education. We don’t want the marking system of Board exams which categories the students into good and bad, even worst. Comparing by rank, by marks and stressing upon the child to fetch good marks have been going to be outdated. And education will be a research based studies. Now goal will not be to keep highest marks but to perfect in learning.

Third, dramatic education reform is a winning issue that will move more minorities into the Republican column. It is the Democrats and misguided Republicans that keep Illinois children in failing schools by not supporting a school choice programs and more rapid charterization of education infrastructure.

Current trends in education “reform” rely heavily on teacher-bashing, and on claims about the supposed failure of public schools that would put Chicken Little to shame. Wealthy individuals and corporate interests spend millions of dollars on media to denigrate public schools and undermine the professional reputation of public school teachers.

Vacation to parks and diverse natural places. It’s a wide, diverse world! It doesn’t have to be about golf, spas, roller coasters, and sports (not that there’s anything wrong with them!). See the mountains, beaches, plains, deserts, wetlands, badlands and forests. Try fishing, hiking, rafting, rock climbing, zip-lining, glacier walking, snorkeling, meteor crater checking, climbing into the rainforest canopy, and caving. Visit nature centers and museums. Many of these places have fine hotels and restaurants in addition to fabulous activities.

Three Tips To Insure A Great School Year

So, if you want to evaluate the process of education at Lewis-Palmer Elementary, follow this most foundational principle – look at the quality of doing in that school. See how much time kids are engaged doing something they have a genuine interest in doing. Do not be fooled with contrived activity. If you see kids obediently (or not) listening to lectures – that is truly bad doing. What kid has a genuine interest in a lecture? If you see kids, with blank expressions, filling out workbooks – that is unlikely good doing. If you see kids laboring through repetitious math problems – that is not good doing.

I believe that the key words here are, “education of children is a fundamental value of the people of the state of Florida”. Again our children and teachers take the hit. It is obvious that we need to revamp our education reform. I believe that if cuts are to be made to education that it should start on the administrative side and not on the backs of our children and teachers. Our teachers have not gotten a pay raise in three years. Many of our teachers are living from paycheck to paycheck.

The Democrats ran a very good “get out the vote effort”. The Democrats are on a completely different level with their GOTV success. In all heavily Democratic precincts, people were handing out flyers just outside the polling place. People were literally in the streets flagging down cars getting people to vote. This is only what we witnessed. Odds are that they had plenty of people knocking on doors on election day driving people to the polls. The coordinated GOTV effort in the 43rd resulted in turnout increasing over 15%! That was what made the margin of victory so great.

Cedra Crenshaw was on the ballot for approximately 100 days. She was slated at the end of March and due to legal challenges from the Democratic party regarding her petition, she was not fully instated until July 21, 2010. Whether we look at this as a 100 day race, or a 6 month race, time was short.

When I was crumbsnatcher my mom gave my sister and i a 25-cent a week allowance on Saturday and i walked down to the local mom-and-pop store, you know where you would occasionally find a roach inside of a malted ball, and bought a box of Milk Duds for 5 cents, a designer Mounds Bar for 10, and a package of 3 comic books for a dime. The middle comic was always a mystery because you could not see it. Everybody read them, traded them, and hid them from evil teachers.

One survey asked kids where they like to spend their free time, and got this response: “I like it indoors best, that’s where the electricity is.” He was honest, and hardly alone. Author Richard Louv calls this, “Nature Deficit Disorder,” in a book called Last Child In the Woods. Of course there is actually no such disease, and certainly no pill for it as well. There are, however, consequences related to this “disease.” Childhood obesity is up, science scores are down.

The Crenshaw campaign instituted a tremendous voter contact program and volunteer ground game. Being short on both time and money in a heavily Democratic district, we decided to focus all of our efforts on likely voters.

When Christians took over the Republican Party, the Democrats were faced with a difficult choice. Unlike the Republican Party, which had effectively become the “Conservative Right Wing Christian Party,” the Democrats had to appeal to a wide variety of voters. In addition to the aging hippies, social liberals, environmentalists, atheists, and other various progressives, they had to woo the great undecided middle. There simply were not enough progressives in america to carry an election.
