This is how book-banning gets its pants on, folks. If you're in a school library this is worth reading. I especially love the part where the book has a "3.0 AR level" sticker on it. When, oh when, will people learn that AR levels HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE-APPROPRIATENESS??? This, my friends, is why we don't rely on leveling in the library (IMHO).

When I read this article I thought about the last Mad Men episode I watched where Betty Draper calmly smokes cigarette after cigarette while on her son's school bus as a field trip chaperone. I think my favorites are #2 (I've said for years that students should progress when they master material and it should have nothing to do with age), #7 (all this testing does nothing but measure content acquisition and we claim to be invested in teaching students to think), and #16 (why have we almost completely done away with apprenticeship learning?). I think I'm going to print this one and put it in my portfolio so I can check it in 2025...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 2014 10:42 AM

Unless there are substantial cultural and political changes in schools, not education, some of these are so entrenched they may be too problematic to change easily. The separation of school and community is one that met with extreme resistance from the managers I worked for. At best, the 'transparency' is tokenism.
