Don’t know if it works but let’s spend billions on it

Turns out my reblog of Diane Ravitch’s NPR interview was more timely than I thought. Billions of dollars have been spent in California and only one week of teaching/learning has resulted. All due to the corporate mentality administrators and CEOs apply regarding who should be creating/running the learning environment in schools.

This link will take you to the full version of Alan Singer’s blog for The Huffington Post, excerpted here: “A different question, but I think an even larger question, is whether teachers should be using scripted online Pearson lessons and assessments. I do not remember any public discussion over whether Pearson should decide what gets taught in American schools.”
