After bills to streamline the dismissal process for abusive teachers failed two years in a row, a Sacramento-based nonprofit wants to put the issue to voters.
The advocacy organization EdVoice has submitted aproposed ballot measure with the arresting title “Stop Child Molesters, Sexual Abusers and Drug Dealers From Working In California Schools Act” to the attorney general for review. EdVoice intends to gather signatures to qualify the measure for the November ballot.
“It shouldn’t take a legion of lawyers, endless paperwork, millions of taxpayer dollars …  to address the challenge of dismissing the perpetrators of egregious misconduct to school children and other school staff,” EdVoice Chief Executive Officer Bill Lucia wrote in an email. “We helped in the filing of the proposed measure on behalf of individuals and groups frustrated that the Legislature cannot seem to solve a problem that unfortunately exists in school districts throughout geographic regions of the state.”
Two years ago, a bill sponsored by Sen. Alex Padilla, D-San Fernando Valley, was bottled up in the Assembly amid fierce opposition from teachers unions; the California Teachers Association said

After Sandy Hook: A New Approach to Campus Safety?



In the aftermath of Columbine in 1999, law enforcement began to rethink its response to mass shootings. Instead of presuming a quick entry into the scene might do more harm than good, a new line of thought emerged: Neutralizing the threat of the “active shooter” had to be the top priority.
It’s too soon to know whether the tragedy at Sandy Hook will prompt long-term changes in the “best practices” of emergency response, but experts and educators believe a another such tipping point may be upon us.

“What I’m hearing is people being told to be prepared to fight rather than simply hide – that is clearly a change in the advice being given,” Victor Herbert, director of the Academy for Critical Incident Analysis at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, part of the City University of New York. “Teachers had been told to put the lights out, lock the door, and hope for the best.”

While it’s a far cry from districts mandating that school personnel respond with force to an

Evan Stone of Educators 4 Excellence Spews Common Core Propaganda

He's Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!! Like your mother in law coming to visit, like that huge blackhead on the back of your neck that is in a horrible spot to squeeze and stays there for years. Or worse, like that old Saturday Night Live skit with John Belushi, "The Thing That Wouldn't Leave,"Little Evan Stone just won't go away.

Imagine New York City's shock when all 25 people (Myself included, but just for the sports section) that read the New York Post opened up to the op-ed section and saw a supposedly coincidentally timed to John King being in NYC opinion pieceabout the Common Core written by that "independent" mind of Little Evan's.

Now for those who don't know who Evan is, he has been a comedic source on these pages for years, an average 6th grade teacher, while his babe,Princess Sydney Morris was worse, and has not taught in over 4 years. 

After I stopped laughing whilst rolling on the floor I decided to share what Evan blabbered with The Crack Team. They laughed so hard that one member of the team, Throckmorton, died. For those who

NYC Public School Parents: The most heartbreaking speech at last night's Common Core forum by Lorri Gumanow:

The most heartbreaking speech at last night's Common Core forum by Lorri Gumanow



There were lots of great speeches last night at the Manhattan Regents forum with Chancellor Tisch and Commissioner King at the Spruce St. School.  Wonderful and eloquent comments from teachers, principals, and parents, including Manhattan CEC leaders Shino Tanikawa, Noah Gotbaum, Tory Frye and Sonja Jones.  But here is a magnificent speech that made many members of the audience tear up.  Shared with Lorri Gumanow's permission.

Commissioner King, Chancellor Tisch, thank you for the opportunity to share with you tonight. My name is Lorri Gumanow, and my husband and I are the proud parents of a very talented 13-year old public school student who is an actor and puppeteer, and wants to work with the Jim Henson Company someday. I am a newly retired special educator. But tonight I am here to ask you to walk in my shoes as a parent.

Our son was born 3 months premature and has several neurological disabilities and an IEP. His disabilities are not the result of poverty, poor prenatal care or poor educational opportunities. He has always thrived in the public school environment. He has had wonderful teachers, wonderful inclusive public schools, and wonderful supports.

All of a sudden he is failing. He failed the math test last year with a score of 1. What happened? The roll out of the Common Core asks 8th graders to now magically perform as 10th graders, without any attention to the skills and knowledge they might have been required to learn and practice in those 2 missing years.

Your solution is that my son just needs to try harder. Increase the rigor! No excuses! And what do you really mean every time you say, "This work?" He does 4 hours of homework every night and still fails his classroom test! If you don't pass, you are a failure, and your teacher is a failure too. Fire that bad teacher! Close that failing school! Failure is not an option. Raise the bar. Unfortunately

Pathways to Prosperity Institutes - Year 2013 (CA Dept of Education):

State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Announces New Effort to Build
Pathways to Careers by Linking Educators and Business Leaders 




SACRAMENTO—Educators and business leaders will come together across the state in coming weeks to share strategies for creating first-rate pathways toward high-growth industries for California's students, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today.
The California Department of Education is working with the California Community College Chancellor's Office, the California Workforce Investment Board, and the Pathways to Prosperity Network to host three Pathways to Prosperity Institutes this month in Sacramento, Clovis, and Los Angeles. Educators, administrators, business, industry, and other agency representatives will be attending these events. 
"Partnerships between schools and businesses have the potential to strengthen both, and to give our students the tools they need to graduate ready to succeed in college and careers,"Torlakson said. "These gatherings build on the work we are doing—from the Common Core State Standards to career technical education—to give students the real-world experience they need to contribute to the future of our state and our economy."
Attendees are encouraged to share strategies on how education and industry can work together to create high-quality career pathway programs aligned with the local and regional needs of business and industry. The goals are for educational agencies and businesses to collaborate and create regional career pathways aligned to local labor market needs; integrate academic and career-based learning aligned to high-need, high-growth, and emerging regional economic sectors; and establish effective work-based learning programs between educational agencies and businesses.
Presenters at the Institute will include Jobs for the Future Vice President and Senior Advisor Nancy Hoffman, and Harvard Graduate School of Education Professor of Practice Emeritus Robert Schwartz. The events are at capacity, and registration is closed. However, reporters may still attend.
  • December 17, 2013: Department of Health Care Services/Department of Public Health Auditorium,1500 Capitol Ave., Auditorium, Sacramento, CA, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • December 18, 2013: Clovis Veterans Memorial District Auditorium, 808 4th St., Clovis, CA, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • December 19, 2013: Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, 350 S. Bixel St., Los Angeles, CA, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The Pathways to Prosperity Network is a collaboration between the Pathways to Prosperity Project at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, Jobs for the Future, and states. They are focused on ensuring that many more young people complete high school, attain a postsecondary credential with currency in the labor market, and launch into a career while leaving open the prospect of further education. 
The Pathways to Prosperity Institutes are part of Torlakson's Career Readiness Campaign designed to support, sustain, and strengthen career technical education in California.

NYC Educator: Padded Cell a Win-Win for KIPP
NYC Educator: Padded Cell a Win-Win for KIPP: Padded Cell a Win-Win for KIPPSure it's barbaric to keep young children in padded cells. It's clearly a cruel way to treat a child, and it's very tough to see how that is not an abject violation of Chancellor's Regulations against corporal punishment and abuse. Of course, rules are for the little people. Were a UFT teacher to toss a kid in a padded cell, you'd better believe there'd be an investigation, and very likely a removal from the classroom.But KIPP says they're gonna just keep on tossing kids into padded cells. If they can be believed, whic
