inBloom, BloomBoard, and the Undeniable, Corporate Reform “Need” for Student Data | deutsch29:



inBloom, BloomBoard, and the Undeniable, Corporate Reform “Need” for Student Data

May 10, 2014

On April 21, 2014, the Gates-funded data warehouse inBloom publicized that it was shutting down.
The New York Times called it a “setback for the nearly $8 billion prekindergarten through 12th-grade education technology software market.”
InBloom CEO Iwan Streichenberger calls it “a real missed opportunity for teachers and school districts seeking to improve student learning.”
I’m sorry, but making my classroom part of “the nearly $8 billion… technology software market” does little to convince me that Iwan Streichenberger can do anything substantial toward “improving student learning” in my classroom.
I wonder just how dead inBloom actually is.
One of the sponsors of inBloom is a company called BloomBoard, a company started by Jason Lange and Eric Dunn in 2o1o. The two entities complemented one another: inBloom was to collect student data; BloomBoard is to collect teacher data for “professional development” and teacher evaluation– and embedded in teacher evaluation is student data.
BloomBoard needs student data. InBloom was to provide student data.
Hmmm.
In true corporate reformer fashion, Jason Lange is a “CEO” who is now making a go at profiting from public education dollars after establishing his professional background in mergers and acquisitions and private equity.
Co-CEO Eric Dunn hails from the highly controversial Edison Learning, the reborn version of Edison Schools. (If managing schools leads to financial failure, just rename and change the game to education software focused on “achievement management solutions.”)
“Mergers and acquisitions” and “achievement management” are not terms on my resume. Then again, my entire professional career has been inside of the classroom. Imagine that.
According to this August 2013 BloomBoard Frequently Asked Questions file, inBloom and BloomBoard are not related:

PTII Education Nation
Looking forward to joining Melissa Harris-Perry in New York City for MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show on May 17, 2014 10 a.m.- 12 p.m. EST for a live panel discussion on Brown vs. Board of Education. My last visit to MHP came during the 2012 Education Nation. Please tune in!
See the posts below. After the blow back from my last post (I managed to get kicked out of a Facebook group for being a “charter lover” even while on vacation), In case you have any doubts about my pragmatism on charters, watch Jonny Alter’s Head Pop Off:

Melissa Harris-Perry Show: Demanding accountability from charters

During the second segment of the Melissa Harris-Perry Show at MSNBC’s Education Nation 2012, we discussed access to charter schools. Charters are “public” schools that are run by a variety of organizations such as intergovernmental (UT-Austin), community groups (Making Waves), large privately-operated corporate networks (KIPP). Regardless of who runs the charters, the current public consciousness is that charters are visions […]

MHP @ MSNBC Education Nation: When data gets in the way of choice ideology

What are you thinking? Vasquez Heilig: Here’s why. Because according to a Stanford study (conducted by […]
