Better Wages and Better Schools
Huffington Post - about 3 years
By Tim Daly This post was originally published on the TNTP Blog. Members of Congress are preparing for a debate in 2014 over raising the federal minimum wage. From my perspective -- and I’m speaking for myself here, not for TNTP -- I believe it should be raised. There are strong opinions on both sides of the issue. My view is admittedly shaped by my work in education. It is difficult for me to accept the fact that an hourly worker earning the federal minimum wage of $7.25 and raising a single child could put in 40 hours a week all year -- without taking a day of vacation -- and still earn so little that according to USDA regulations, his or her child would qualify for free lunch in school. To be clear, I am not talking about reduced-price lunch. I am saying free. I am not an economist. But it doesn’t seem right to me that parents can work a full-time job but earn so little that they are living below the poverty line. Yet that’s what the current minimum wage guarantees: full-t ...

The Implementation Dodge
Huffington Post - about 3 years
By Tim Daly and Dan Weisberg This post was originally published on the TNTP Blog. We generally prefer to discuss policies rather than people on this blog, but there are some figures whose influence is so large that their words and actions justify scrutiny. One of them is Randi Weingarten, president of the million-member American Federation of Teachers (AFT). Her choices have real consequences for students in the schools where her members teach. Right now, Weingarten is in a tough spot. The education landscape has been transformed during the nearly six years of her tenure, with dozens of states embracing stronger teacher evaluation policies, adopting the Common Core State Standards, and undertaking other reforms intended to modernize the teaching profession and improve educational outcomes. Meanwhile, the number of dues-paying union members is declining nationwide, and upstart organizations like Teach Plus and Educators 4 Excellence are offering teachers new channels for expr ...

Bill De Blasio's Schools Chancellor Remains Unknown Even As Victory Takes Shape
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK -- The outcome of Tuesday's mayoral election may be largely a foregone conclusion, as Public Advocate Bill de Blasio (D) is expected to trounce former transit director Joe Lhota (R). But major questions still hang over certain aspects of an impending de Blasio administration, among the more notable of these: Who will he put in charge of the nation's largest school district? Many a New York publication has compiled its list of potential chancellors, who have ranged from the former leader of Baltimore's public schools to the current head of a school district in Maryland who has resisted increased standardized testing. In the days leading up to the election, though, a new name trickled out of the rumor mill. Earlier this week, Page Six of the New York Post ran an item saying that de Blasio was "considering hiring teachers' union boss Randi Weingarten as the next NYC schools chancellor." A source told columnist Richard Johnson that "she wants the job." Weingarten served as h ...

Starting Teacher SAT Scores Rise As Educators Face Tougher Evaluations
Huffington Post - over 3 years
American teachers may be getting smarter. Still, scrutiny of their work and cries to overhaul the education system intensify. The education reform group National Council on Teacher Quality, and Harvard University's Education Next journal on Wednesday each released a paper about the state of the teaching force. The paper by National Council on Teacher Quality, a Washington-based think tank that has long advocated for rigorous teacher evaluations, provides an overall look at how states are evaluating teachers and using the results. The Education Next paper, authored by the University of Washington's Dan Goldhaber and Joe Walch, investigated the academic qualifications of new teachers and found that average SAT scores have increased significantly over the last decade. Taken together, the articles show an evolving workforce that raises questions about the often extreme hand-wringing over teacher quality. "Although teachers in the U.S. are more likely to be drawn from the lower end of ...

This Man Is About To Give The SAT A Dramatic Makeover
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK -- Growing up in downtown Manhattan as the son of a psychiatrist and a college president, David Coleman never wanted for stimulation. At the dinner table, his parents repeatedly told him that it wasn't his exam scores that mattered, but rather the quality of his ideas and inquiry. "They cared more about the quality of what I did and the engagement with ideas than they did about other measures of success," he said, speaking in his brightly-lit Columbus Circle office, where a black-and-white Martin Luther King Jr. photograph hangs on the wall. When Coleman heard stories of other parents who paid their kids to get high exam scores, he said, "I just thought how lucky I was." Now, Coleman is in charge of the most important test score a student can receive. As president of the College Board, a national education company, he is redesigning the SAT, the standardized test taken by many high school seniors as a part of the college application process. He is also expa ...

Arne Duncan Loosens Regs Amid Debate Over 'National School Board'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In what some see as a tacit recognition of the Obama administration's overreach into nitty-gritty management of America's schools, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will give states a reprieve from certain aspects of teacher evaluations' consequences and the new wave of testing tied to the Common Core. Duncan said Tuesday that he will allow the first two groups of states that received waivers from the No Child Left Behind Act to seek an extra year, until the academic year 2016-2017, before they give their teacher evaluations teeth by applying them to personnel decisions. "Ensuring that educators are well prepared to implement those new standards is critically important," Duncan said. "After listening to teachers and education leaders, we are providing additional flexibility to states." He added that this will allow reforms to continue "on pace," but that states will "have some flexibility" in when they start "using student growth data for high-stakes decisions." ...

Weingarten: Wait a Year-Plus on High Stakes Around Common Core
Education Week - almost 4 years
This morning, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten gave a speech in New York City in which she called for a moratorium on high stakes associated with the impending common-core tests. She said that 75 percent of teachers support the standards, but they need more time to understand and put them into practice before schools, students, and teachers are measured by scores on the new assessments. (Education Week reporter Catherine Gewertz covered the content of the speech here.) In a media call just after the speech, Weingarten explained that the moratorium "could be one year, could be longer." She went on to say that rather than a particular amount of time on the moratorium, she was asking states to put in place a "quality implementation plan," including curriculum, professional development, and input from teachers. "In some places the implementation plan could be done quickly," she said. "In Cleveland they've done this in three years." Weingarten adde ...

Postponed!
Huffington Post - about 4 years
NEW YORK — The musical based on the film "Diner" has postponed its Broadway opening. Producers said late Sunday night that the Kathleen Marshall-directed show with songs by Sheryl Crow will make its debut on Broadway in the fall, instead of the spring. Producer Scott Zeiger in a statement says a four-week workshop of the show in November got good feedback and that early fall dates work better for all involved. Set in Baltimore on Christmas 1959, the story explores the lives of a circle of friends in their early 20s, all set to vintage rock `n' roll and doo-wop. Barry Levinson, who wrote and directed the 1982 film, adapted it into the new musical. The film starred Steve Guttenberg, Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Paul Reiser, Tim Daly, Daniel Stern and Ellen Barkin.

After Strike, Chicago Makes Sense Of Its Schools
Huffington Post - over 4 years
CHICAGO -- Every Sunday, CEO of Chicago Public Schools Jean-Claude Brizard takes his 2-year-old son to breakfast. It's a "sacred" ritual, Brizard emphasizes, because "he doesn't get much daddy time." But one Sunday in the beginning of September, he felt too sick to his stomach to take his son out. A few months earlier, members of the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) had voted to give union leadership the authority to call a strike. Under Brizard and Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D), teachers said they felt alienated, a circumstance triggered by Emanuel yanking their scheduled raise and aggravated by his ballbusting rhetoric -- once remarking, for example, that teachers' raises meant students "got the shaft." That Sunday, Sept. 9, marked the final deadline CTU had set for announcing a potential walkout. So instead of going out, Brizard cooked for his son and passed time playing cards. By midday, he was in his office in downtown Chicago, figuring out what would happen if 350,000 public sch ...
