Federally Funded Study: Common Core Sunk U.S. Kids’ Test Scores

Quote:
Researchers the Obama administration funded to assist Common Core’s rollout recently found, to their surprise, that under Common Core U.S. student achievement has sunk...
More:

Quote:
The study found not only lower student achievement since Common Core, but also performed data analysis suggesting students would have done better if Common Core had never existed. The achievement declines also grew worse over time, study coauthor Mengli Song told Chalkbeat, an education news website: “That’s a little troubling.”
Bold mine.

How refreshing!

San Ysidro High School Valedictorian Goes All "Carrie" on the School's Faculty In Her Speech

Quote:
San Ysidro High senior Nataly Buhr’s speech began the way most valedictorian addresses begin: She thanked her parents for their love and support, her friends for the memories she will cherish, and a few select teachers for helping her achieve success.

Then Buhr broke from tradition when she thanked a school counselor who she said was regularly unavailable to students. She didn't name the counselor.

"To my counselor, thanks for teaching me to fend for myself," Buhr said. "You were always unavailable to my parents and I, despite appointments. Only in these past few weeks, with the awards ceremonies and graduation coming up, did you begin making your appearance."


Buhr went on to thank the school's main office staff for teaching her to be "resourceful."

"Your negligence to inform me of several scholarships until the day before they were due potentially caused me to miss out on thousands of dollars," she said.

The quiet murmurs among the crowd and students escalated into loud gasps and outcries when Buhr thanked a teacher who she said was "regularly intoxicated during class."

"Thank you for using yourself as an example to teach students about the dangers of alcoholism"” Buhr said. "Being escorted by police out of school was a lasting impression. I hope that future students and staff learn from these examples."

She didn't use the teacher’s name.

Here's one for Freddie. I now refer to teachers without degrees or union affiliation as "Undocumented Educators."

I'm just spitballin' here, but I don't think she's a SJW...

Harvard should pull their support for Hogg & give it to her.

The Way Of The Woke

Quote:
The new hotness in grading for woke academics: “Dispensing almost completely with judgements of quality.”
Participants will be shown how to “revise course materials so they don’t accidentally promote or reinforce racist practices,” though the particulars are somehow both emphatic and opaque. We are, for instance, told that, “single standards” for language “kill our students,” which sounds just a tad breathless. There will, it seems, be lots of “redesigning assessment ecologies,” and quite a few “dimension-based rubrics,” which, via an as yet unspecified process, will upend “white racial habits of language,” resulting in some kind of righteous emancipation. In short, grading a student’s ability to convey their thoughts in writing – and to formulate thoughts by writing – is a manifestation of “white language supremacy,” an apparently murderous phenomenon, and therefore to be abandoned in the name of “inclusive excellence.”
Oh, there’s more.

So basically, these children are taking on mountains of debt to be taught that if they express themselves in a way that someone else doesn’t understand, it’s the other person’s fault.

A Little Competition Goes A Long Way, Even In Education

Quote:
School Voucher Kids More Likely to Graduate From College, Study Says

And this is into the fierce headwinds of the combined efforts of the Democrat Party, the various national and state teachers unions, and every ****-ant progressive mouthpiece in the land.
"The collective evidence in this paper indicates that students in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program tend to have higher levels of educational attainment than a carefully matched comparison group of Milwaukee Public School students," the authors conclude. "The MPCP students are more likely to enroll, persist, and experience more total years in a four-year college."
