Poverty stagnates in Michigan | Michigan League for Public Policy

Matt Korolden's insight:
LANSING, Mich. — Poverty remained high in Michigan last year, highlighting that many people have not yet recovered from the recession and underscoring the need for state policymakers to do more to help struggling people afford the basics such as decent housing, nutritious food, reliable child care and transportation. Increasing the state Earned Income Tax Credit and minimum wage will help. - See more at: http://www.mlpp.org/poverty-stagnates-in-michigan#sthash.CiG4Dqsb.dpuf

Matt Korolden's insight:
1. The Proper Role of Standardized Testing – The purpose of any large scale assessment must be clearly stated and the assessments must be demonstrated as scientifically and empirically valid for that purpose(s) prior to their use. This includes research and verification as to whether a student’s performance on tests is actually predictive of performance on other indicators we care about, including post-secondary success, graduation rates and future employment. In addition, standardized test results should be used only in concert with a diverse set of measures that capture evidence of student growth and school impact across all important outcomes outlined in the Education Quality Standards.

Charter School Productivity Report Lacks Validity | National Education Policy Center | Education | Scoop.it
Matt Korolden's insight:
BOULDER, CO (August 19, 2014) – A recent report from the University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform (DER) on charter school productivity asserts charter schools are more effective in producing achievement on standardized tests and are also less costly per pupil than traditional public schools. A new review released today finds the report’s claims suffer from multiple sources of invalidity, rendering the report useless.
