Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:08 PM

In my state of Illinois, I believe the costs of the PARCC assessement to be less than we currently spend. And I belive we are getting a higher quality product. But for some states, I understand the cost will be more. On the other hand, quality costs. I needed a new laptop. The old one I used for presenting workshops continues to be quite expensive, so I purchased less costly maching. A great laptop, but poor for presenting. You get what you pay for.

Teach n' Kids Learn's curator insight, January 9, 2013 12:15 PM

The Common Core State Standards provide an opportunity to realize systemic change and ensure that American students are held to the same high expectations in mathematics and literacy as their global peers — regardless of state or zip code. This Action Brief for secondary school leaders is a starting point, designed to increase awareness of the standards, create a sense of urgency around their implementation, and provide these stakeholders — who are faced with dramatically increased expectations in the context of fewer resources — with a deeper understanding of the standards and their role in implementing the standards. Achieve, in partnership with College Summit, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and the National Association of Elementary School Principals, released this with support from MetLife Foundation.

Get Less Busy: Teachers know this as well as anyone!!!

Get Less Busy:  Teachers know this as well as anyone!!! | Common Core Math ideas | Scoop.it
The irony is, that at this time, perhaps more than ever before, our leaders need to be making themselves much less ‘busy’, and focusing more than they ever have done on nurturing their workforce.

 

People in our workforces are under serious strain. They are constantly being asked to do more with less. Our businesses and government departments are responding to the austerity drives by trimming more and more from their budgets, which inevitably means fewer people are left to do the work. Meanwhile the demands are increasing. With everyone in the economy tightening their belts, company profits are falling, which means that a smaller and smaller workforce is being challenged to work smarter, harder, more innovatively and to ‘keep their chins up and stay engaged’.  Teachers see this with increasing class sizes, fewer support resources and the demands to do more for more students.

 

So how do we own our own time?
