NYC Educator: Reformier and Reformier: Reformier and Reformier by NYC Educator The Daily News is all excited about the advent of the Common Core. Never mind that it has never been tested anywhere, ever. The vital thing is that we implement it immediately. Doubtless the editorial writers, should they ever fall ill, would want to be treated with experimental medicines that have never been tried on anyone, and hope for the best. Because that, in fact, is pretty much what they're advocating for our children, amazingly, as just what they need. The hero of their story is reformy John Ki... more »

Public Schools First NC | Advocating for high-quality public schools for North Carolina.: Public education is undergoing a death by 1,000 cuts. It's been happening slowly, surely, over time. For four consecutive years, the state budget for K-12 public education has been cut.
