edgeblogger A2: Reforms essentially double down on 20th century teaching & learning paradigm. Do NOT prepare Ss for their future in 21st century

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:20 PM, Nov 1st, 2015 via Echofon)

@Teenservant Attempted reforms have been new TLE with value-add assessment based on Ss test scores & A-F report cards. All bad ideas

drewprice11 A1: Curriculum has become narrowed - and in many cases removed teacher and student creativity.

ClaudiaSwisher A2 — policy makers seem to think accountability can happen with a test. We need to educate them.

merchkr A2 - Harder to get classes into library because Ts are too stressed to get material covered.

SethMeier A2) Testing reforms have caused young Ts to fear taking instructional risks. Risk taking Ts produce creative learners!

A2 Edu reforms have increased fear among teachers & students & hampered efforts to improve digital literacy & technology integration

via Echofon

A1 Sadly, all of the major educational reforms in the past four years in our state have been destructive rather than constructive
