Jesse Lava: What If It's Not the Prisoner Who Needs Forgiveness? (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Co-authored by Bill Mefford, director of civil and human rights at the United Methodist Church's General Board of Church & Society; and Sala Nolan Gonzales, minister for criminal justice and human rights at the United Church of Christ's Justice & Witness Ministries. As Christians should know but often don't, mass incarceration is one of our country's greatest sins. With less than 5% of the world's population, we house nearly 25% of the world's prisoners -- more than any other nation. Over half of these people are in for nonviolent offenses. And the system has a deep racial bias, with people of color (especially black men) receiving more prosecutions and longer sentences than white folks who commit the same crimes. And yes, think of the children: There are 2.7 million kids in the United States with a parent behind bars, and 250,000 juveniles enter the adult system each year. We could be giving these kids a fighting chance by investing heavily in rehabilitation an ...

Rhee vs. QC: How StudentsFirst's Report Card and Quality Counts Differ
Education Week - about 4 years
UPDATED With the release this week of two different K-12 state rankings, one from Education Week and one from StudentsFirst, it's been a bonanza for people who like (or at least are compelled to write about) "report cards" on education. Naturally enough, there have been some comparisons between the two. For example, Motoko Rich, an education reporter at The New York Times, noted that both Education Week's Quality Counts and StudentsFirst gave Florida a B- grade. The obvious statistical difference there is that StudentsFirst's B- was the highest grade given out to any state, while Quality Counts gave better grades to five other states. But more broadly, what are the similarities and differences between the two reports? First, since several people have made an issue of this, it's important to note that Quality Counts includes actual student achievement data. For example, the share of a state's students scoring proficient in reading would get a corresponding number of ...

Education A Top Election Issue For Voters, Polling Results Show
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Education was largely absent from the election just months before, but polling results Monday reveal that education has emerged as a top issue among early voters in battleground states, according to a Tuesday memo from the National Education Association. Education is a "somewhat important" or "very important" issue to 80 percent of voters, and a majority said they support increased funding for public education, even if it means raising taxes. Among governors, education is a top priority, just second to the economy and jobs. The results are from an Interactive Voice Response poll by the NEA, the nation's largest teachers union, conducted in battleground states on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4. "Local elected leaders considering cuts to education programs and federal lawmakers who will shape national education policy would be well advised to understand that voters believe investing in education and innovation is the best way to help grow our economy," the memo reads. As elec ...

In San Francisco, the games are afoot
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
In San Francisco, the games are afoot Amid the hubbub at the end of Monday night's game, The Chronicle's Ward Bushee, sitting near the third-base line, saw the Cards' manager Mike Matheny make eye contact from across the infield with Giants manager Bruce Bochy and quietly tip his hat to the winner. At Original Joe's on Friday night, amid Giants fever that sent "Let's go" chants through the bar, Sen. Dianne Feinstein was chowing down and Gov. Jerry Brown was attending a private party for his sister, Cynthia Brown. The New York Times reported on Sept. 13: "In Iran, where nearly all large protests must get government approval, witnesses and news reports said 500 Iranians screaming 'Death to America!' converged outside the Swiss Embassy, which handles American diplomatic interests." Moody thinks it can only be good for his literary effort that Czech-born Madeleine Albright headlined with Herbie Hancock last month at the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Drums Comp ...

Michael McShane: Fact Checking HuffPost: It's Not About the Money
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Co-authored by KC Deane, Research Assistant at the American Enterprise Institute Joy Resmovits is one of the best education beat writers publishing today, so we were perplexed when she wrote a piece that so poorly reflected the realities of the contemporary education finance debate. While many (including President Obama) are focusing on whether the appropriate dollars (currently disbursed at the district level) are actually following students into the classroom, she reiterated the tired argument that "property poor" districts lack the funds to meet student needs. A little background might be necessary. Public schools in the United States are funded through a combination of local sources (usually property tax), state sources (usually sales, but sometimes also property or income tax), and federal sources (income tax). Traditionally the majority of education expenditures were paid by local entities. In Ms. Resmovits's article, Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond was correct to poin ...

California Parents Say Publicly Releasing Teacher Ratings Will Improve Performance
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
While teachers and most education reformers remain highly uncomfortable with having test-based teacher evaluations aired in public, one survey suggests parents take a different view. In a new SurveyUSA news poll that asked 500 California adults about "releasing performance ratings of California public school teachers," 65 percent responded that they supported the idea. Sixty-six percent indicated they believed releasing teacher data would improve their performance, while 32 percent said they thought it would discourage teachers from working in California. "The results are shocking," said Cynthia Brown, who oversees education policy at the Center for American Progress. "I was surprised at how overwhelming the support was for releasing the ratings and the notion that it would improve teacher performance." But Paul Bruno, a teacher in Oakland, Calif., said the results were expected. "If you ask people the same questions surrounding their own professions, the results woul ...
