|This is a group not from the right. The Common Core State Standards proponents are hearing discontent from both sides of the aisle. Are our legislators/schools/state boards listening?|
Recently Barnard College hosted a conference, "Reclaiming the Conversation", about the current educational reform which includes nationalized standards, increased assessments/tests and the privatization of public education.
There are comments about the educational reform currently being implemented from parents, educational researchers, professors, and teachers in the video below. Here is the description of the video:
A gathering of teachers, parents, students and scholars to build coalitions and support resistance against corporate education "reforms" that are privatizing public education and reducing the measure of teaching and learning to test scores.
Date: May 4th, 2013
Venue: Barnard College, Columbia University, New York City
This event was made possible by:
The Barnard Education Program
An anonymous donor
the North Star Fund
The Shirley Chisholm Project
Be sure to listen at about the 4:10 mark.
It is becoming increasingly clear the talking points from CCSSO don't align with the experience of the teachers or the facts of educational reform history.
