Politico: Will Dr. Cardona Push 2021 Testing? Not many people outside Connecticut are familiar with President-Elect Biden’s choice for Secretary of Education. He went to public schools. He has worked in public schools his entire career. His children go to public schools in Meriden, where he lives. He is not aligned with DFER or Chiefs for Change or any billionaire-funded “reform” group. Politico

A teacher will head the department of education. – Fred Klonsky
A TEACHER WILL HEAD THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Like most educators around the country, I don’t know much about Dr. Miguel Cardona other than that he comes from years of classroom experience and that he was the head of public schools in Connecticut.

Where Did Education Fail Us? | The Jose Vilson
WHERE DID EDUCATION FAIL US? In my final reflection for the semester of my doctoral studies (don’t ask me how it’s going), I considered what it meant to get an education. Over and again in this space, I’ve considered how there’s a big difference between schooling and education. Schooling is a set of processes characterized by the desire to show students a given set of ideas and materials. Educat

NYC Educator: Can We Agree on a Fair Evaluation System?
Can We Agree on a Fair Evaluation System? That's a tough question. Our esteemed chancellor writes us missives telling us how much he respects and cares for us. Our safety is the most important thing there is. Yet you don't see him setting his foot in a school unless it's pre-screened and a whole lot cleaner than any I've seen over the last decade or two. If Regents exams are canceled, and if no

STOP USING BLACK CHILDREN AS AN EXCUSE TO OPEN YOUR SCHOOLS It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog. The Corona Virus has forced me to address so many things virtually, that the last thing I’ve had the energy for was sitting down in front of the computer for yet another thing.
