You got to be kidding! We are using the same mathematical formulas Wall Street derivatives traders used to implode the World economy and now we are using them to evaluate teachers?
So when Common Core architect David Coleman, whose work Secretary Duncan endorses, disregards children's opportunities for self expression and response to educational experience with statements like this: "When you grow up in this world you realize people don't give a shit about what you feel or what you think." I think that's absurd...
Children in U.S. schools need and deserve better.
American children should not be educated as drones for corporate consumption.
The mind numbing, imagination-less, standardized educational experience planned by Secretary Duncan, David Coleman, Bill Gates and their corporate cohorts should be reconsidered. The Chicago Teachers Union and Indiana Voters got it right.
"No one can predict how far an individual child may go in a dynamic school system when an understanding teacher, using all the resources of the community, awakens his imagination and interest and thus releases his own emotional drive."
