Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 22, 12:27 PM

Could it be about both? Research is not always just numbers. It can be about teachers telling their stories and describing teaching as a phenomenological experience. What is teaching? How do we each experience teaching?

Trying to get better teachers into nation’s poor classrooms

Trying to get better teachers into nation’s poor classrooms | college and career ready | Scoop.it
The Education Department is opting to enforce an existing law after six years, but critics say it won’t make a difference.

 

 The Washington Post (11/10, Layton) reports that ED on Monday “ordered states to devise plans to get stronger teachers into high-poverty classrooms, correcting a national imbalance in which students who need the most help are often taught by the weakest educators.” The article explains that ED ordered state education chiefs to “analyze whether too many of their ‘excellent’ educators are absent from struggling schools and to craft a strategy to spread them more evenly across schools.” The Post reports that ED will spend $4.2 million to set up a technical assistant network “to help states and districts develop and implement their plans,” and quotes Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon saying, “We are all dismayed by the lack of compliance. We’re saying this is critical for us.” Lhamon also said, “The states will comply with the law. What we’re trying to do is make clear what compliance looks like and what we . . . we hope and expect this experience will be consistent with our past experience as well.”

High School Discipline: How Strict Is Too Strict? "charter networks...popularize strictness"

High School Discipline: How Strict Is Too Strict? "charter networks...popularize strictness" | college and career ready | Scoop.it

The backlash against no-excuses discipline in (charter) high schools

 

"Over the past two decades, hundreds of elementary and middle schools across the country have embraced an uncompromisingly stern approach to educating low-income students of color. But only more recently have some of the charter networks that helped popularize strictness, including the Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP), opened high schools—an expansion that has tested the model in new, and divisive, ways. There’s no official name for this type of school, and not all of the informal terms please the educators in charge: the ethos is often described as “no excuses,” “paternalistic,” or devoted to “sweating the small stuff.” The schools, most of them urban charters, share an aversion to even minor signs of disorder and a pressing need to meet the test-based achievement standards of the No Child Left Behind era or else find themselves shuttered. Front and center in their defense of intensive regimentation for their predominantly minority students is a stirring goal beyond that bottom line: to send all their graduates, many of them first-generation college aspirants, on to higher education."

Smarter Balanced States Approve Achievement Level Recommendations | Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

Smarter Balanced States Approve Achievement Level Recommendations | Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium | college and career ready | Scoop.it

OLYMPIA, WASH. (November 17, 2014) —Members of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium have voted to approve initial achievement levels for the mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA) assessments that will be administered in 17 states and one territory this school year. The vote marks an important milestone in the development of the assessment system.

 
“These initial achievement levels were developed with input from thousands of educators and community members, reflecting a diverse cross-section of views on education. Moving forward, the achievement levels, along with scale scores that also will be reported, will help teachers and parents understand student performance and needs for support,” said Smarter Balanced Executive Director Joe Willhoft.
 
The achievement levels serve as a starting point for discussion about the performance of individual students and of groups of students in mathematics and English Language arts. There are other measures that students, teachers and parents can also use to help evaluate the academic progress of students and schools, such as scale scores, growth models, and portfolios of student work. The states also unanimously approved a position paper to provide broad guidelines for how the scores and achievement levels can be used and interpreted by state officials, parents, teachers and other stakeholders.
