Definitely worth the look. 30 years in, I go back to the opaque projector and the purple inked mimeograph with hand crank.

Amazing what we did with so  much less back then. I don't seem to have enough time today and I feel like I don't get enough done.

Common Core Meant To Bring Public Education 'To Scale'

Common Core Meant To Bring Public Education 'To Scale' | Education | Scoop.it

"At the American Enterprise Institute in March 2014, billionaire Bill Gates explained why the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are necessary above and beyond individual state standards that might be better: 'You get more free market competition. Scale is good for free market competition.Individual state regulatory capture is not good for competition.'  In economics, 'scale' involves decreasing costs as a result of the ability to mass produce. Gates sees 'scale potential' in the national standardization of public education– i.e., CCSS. He believes such is 'good for free market competition.'  Not true. The national standardization of public education does not promote economic health for small (local) businesses. Instead, it feeds monopolies– like bloated, incompetent Pearson. Pearson has an established history of finding itself on the defendant end of lawsuits, including those related to copyright infringement, misuse of a nonprofit, and faulty reporting of results." | by Mercedes Schneider

Subverting the System: Student and Teacher as Equals

Subverting the System: Student and Teacher as Equals | Education | Scoop.it
One educator tries a different approach: “It’s a different way of approaching education, with educators not being the controlling force. It’s about breaking down boundaries and seeing yourself as an equal. We’re all just doing the best we can to learn and to try to form a narrative with cohesion and meaning.”
