my view: getting education reform right - smart board stand

Whitt merged the Independent School District, the Texas rural school district he attended from kindergarten to grade 12. (CNN)-
In the election year, the problems of our country's fiscal future are primary and central, and we cannot forget that the progress of our children's education is crucial to renewing the American economy. S. prosperity.
However, more than 10 years after its promulgation, there is little evidence that Bush-
The federal law of not letting a child fall behind has fulfilled its promise to provide higher quality education for students who are left behind in public schools.
In fact, we are witnessing its failure in real time, and millions of our most needy children are standing in the dust of not having a single child left behind.
While NCLB has accused and humiliated local schools and individual secondary schools
Class educators are at the heart of education policy, where schools in Texas get funding through a system-the target income system, where each school district assigns a dollar of money to each student,
Regions with high asset value or mineral wealth automatically invest more money into the school system, which translates directly into newer computers, better books and more qualified teachers.
So while each region needs to provide the same authorization program and have students reach the same minimum level in terms of exam scores, attendance and graduation rates, schools in rich communities have gained more resources to achieve the same results.
Our kids all run the same game.
It's just that some people wear Nike and some wear flip flops. Good luck kids.
The bottom line is that Texas has invested millions more in educating children in rich communities than in educating the same number of children in our poor communities.
If a child with a bad postal code does not have a high test score, the federal government will be responsible for their teachers and school boards, not because of the architects who carried out brain robbery against the born child in the wrong community.
This takes place nationwide.
In the absence of a new federal education framework authorized by Congress, the Obama administration is approving exemptions that will free states from the shackles of some of the key fairness measures designed to improve the outcome of troubled students, schools and regions.
Although these specific exemption requirements may be new, the direction of reform they accept is not much different from that of the NCLB: to measure the results without the need for appropriate input, labeling schools and teachers without proper measurement, or supporting and emphasizing testing in narrow discipline areas, rather than encouraging good testing
Education is balanced.
Under the immunity, there are accusations everywhere, but for politicians who fund pranks, no one will cynically take the opportunity from the same children, they ended up failing to pass the test with amazing numbers.
This approach continues to ignore the growing evidence that reforms focus only on results and actually widen the achievement gap.
This also amounts to a refusal to address the growing inequality of educational funding, which exacerbated the poor performance of students and became the biggest obstacle to teacher efficiency.
This makes our teachers-who are asked to do more with less time each day-constantly put on trial under NCLB.
At the same time, our legislators evade review because they did not pass policies that help alleviate these inequalities and remedy other injusticesof-
School factors such as poverty, homelessness and lack of adequate health care all have a decisive and destructive effect on students' test scores.
We are just treating the fever we see and ignoring the cancer that causes the fever.
Perhaps in order to address these deficiencies, the government's budget for the fiscal year 2013 has significantly facilitated investment in education, including requests of up to $30 billion to prevent teacher layoffs and address teacher quality issues, and a further $30 billion request to improve school facilities.
However, while these suggested investments are highly needed, they are offset by the expansion of competing grant projects, which directly receive significant funding from a more inclusive formula
Funded projects, as well as a handful of states and organizations that meet specific but often experimental requirements --
"Research" directly from ideology often supports requirements --
Promote think tanks.
There is no doubt that the risk is great.
Our country is in the midst of a huge demographic shift.
By the end of this century, children of color under the age of 18 will become the majority of all children in the United States.
These young people are mainly from low-income groups.
Income families in communities with difficult schools.
If we do not implement the right policy framework to support the achievement of all students, strengthen the teaching profession and strike the right balance between opportunity and responsibility, the United States will find itself further behind in the global economy.
Finally, although countless salespeople of the new and expensive "miracle" project can't say it, our success or failure in education is not the exclusive property of teachers.
If anything, thousands of brave teachers across the country are trying to eliminate the damage done by politicians-whether in Texas or in our country's capitol building-who use budget shortages as an excuse, ignore the need for the most vulnerable (and most under-represented)in our society.
We believe that for too long, we should quietly provide educational waste to other people's children, and now we see the inevitable result, we would rather tear down the school, and unwilling to offend the unequal merchants who live in our polling booth --ourselves.
Education reform is our own responsibility.
2020 Vision roadmap: Pre-
K. through the blueprint for success in post-secondary education, the learning opportunities movement provides a comprehensive approach to reform, including many evidence
Smart strategies that give all students the opportunity to learn.
Policy makers, education professionals, parents and other stakeholders should use it to guide the policies and practices they must advance to support our children's dreams and restore prosperity in our country.
Or we can continue to do so.
The views expressed in this comment are only those of John Cohn.
Reform in the real sense began with stabilizing the middle class and fairly funded education.
What is needed is the reform of parenting methods.
The school's plan to protect students-think about protecting teachers.
Teachers should educate your children, not raise them.
Throw them at school, then throw them in front of the TV, until all the time in the evening there is no parenting-it's breeding!
Improving our school is not a simple solution.
Many factors such as class size, good teachers, parent participation, and student motivation are all factors of our children's education.
In my personal experience, I don't think it would help to just throw money at this issue.
For example, our school has a smart board in every classroom.
The problem is that half of the teachers can't or won't use them.
Our teachers are well paid and many people refuse to retire.
When I got lost at school, I found teachers with at least two children wandering.
The teachers' union is so strong that it is almost impossible to remove a teacher.
Some of our worst teachers have become managers.
I have to explain to our principles why it is important for 3rd students to remember their schedule.
Unless there is an effective way to remove poor teachers and administrators from our school system, investing money in the system will not help to improve the education of our children.
As a physics teacher, your comment on the smart board was hit home.
Without asking if we needed/could use them, a smart board appeared in our room, covering the middle half of the whiteboard and basically leaving a small space on both sides.
I don't have enough space to fully demonstrate solving a physical problem with two equations and two unknowns.
Students do not have enough room to write their experimental results for peer review.
The whiteboard becomes a passive focus in the classroom.
Physics is not good for smart boards.
However, is this good for a small group problem with the SMART Board not adding any new content to solve.
All I need is a projector but no one is consulting me. Wasted money.
The purpose of this rant is to show that you can't simply judge teachers by whether or not they use the latest gadget.
Some of the most profound learning my students do is with a pop-up toy for 50 cents.
You don't know why your teacher doesn't retire.
Our educational decisions need to be based on real and profound evidence, not on the agenda and rumors.
For example, there is an established relationship between socio-economic status and school performance, but funding is not based on that fact.
Poor school I can drop 2 trillion yuan, but if the student doesn't want to study and only steals all the new equipment, then I'm sorry I can't do anything.
Horses cannot be forced to drink water.
It all has to do with parents and why no idiot commentator is aware of this.
There is a reason why rich children have rich parents, which is because their grandparents may encourage them to do their best.
Oh well, it will be interesting to see how education will be in the future.
Hi, welcome to the blog, you are the best blogger and what you write is correct.
I'm a fan of you.
I read all your blogs. Thanks,. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Haha, look at the security perimeter that the Fed has built, and some of the worst enemies in the world are the president of the United States.
After our economic recovery, America's best equipped and least defensive country in history education should be the first investment.
National defense should be after education.
This is the most important thing.
The fuel of social defense is a job of the government, it should be a national problem, not a Fed problem, if your state is not well educated, at least you can transfer to another state with a better system, if the Fed controls it, you have no choice but a bad system. al;
Jk-this has happened when you complete federal, state, and local investments.
Funding Affects the proportion of teachers and students.
The room of 20 students will have more study, student participation, questions, immediate observation and evaluation, and clarification compared to the room of 32 students.
Simply put, higher learning will happen and more students will get it.
When they say, "Oh, I see ! " They said with enthusiasm.
"A culture where the spirit of Mexico is problematic.
In the past, logic was a course of study.
It's painful to grow your brain, and unless it involves personal passions like racing, yyayJohn Kuhn is so right for different funding;
Schools with the lowest social status
The economic population, therefore, the students with the least advantage of progress ,(
It is often a student of color, and there are many poor students.
White students, their parents are less educated than their children ,)
The least amount of money is obtained.
As a result, these schools had to fire teachers and work in crowded classrooms, which in turn led to more time for discipline than teaching.
Teachers do not have time for students who are eager to participate and challenge, and do not have time for students to fall behind and depressed.
The middle is media rule.
I would ask, how much does it cost to educate a child on average?
Depends on the status?
Yes, it depends on the cost of living in the area because wages are the driving factor.
CNN's thought School blog is where parents, educators and students learn and discuss what's going on in education.
We are curious about what happened before kindergartens, universities and other places.
Is there a story to tell?
