Weighing In ...
Where are the teachers going?
03/09/2015

Why are numbers in college teacher programs falling so quickly? The University of North Carolina School of Education dean says he thinks it’s because people considering the field no longer see it as a stable career. He says the “headache list” is long for teachers with high-stakes testing and efforts to link developmentally inappropriate tests to teacher evaluation.


Brave steps forward?

A New York elementary school has taken the first step in applying lessons learned from Finland. For many, this is a beacon of hope. If you've seen the film, "Race to Nowhere," you'll know that many agree that homework has gotten out of control.  Some say educators are being asked to teach far more than what is possible to teach in a school year. What do you think?


The time is now
02/19/2015

New York’s 2013 Principal of the Year, Carol Burris, is shedding light on the way high stakes testing is hurting students. She says there comes a time to break rules if it means protecting students from unneccessary high stakes testing and that time is now.


Compressed folder

Here are the files ... I tried e-mailing but Comcast told me it was too big.

http://www.washingtonea.org/content/ftp/Red-BW-small.zip

http://www.washingtonea.org/content/ftp/White-BW-small.zip

As you probably know, just right click the folders to unzip after you've downloaded them. I'd already sized the images to 8x10 format for the wall display -- I'm not sure who is doing that part -- so these are not quite 1x1.5 ... more like 1.15 x 1.5. Let me know if that's a problem, or if you have trouble getting these files to work.

Thanks!
