March 18, 2014

Tomorrow the Louisiana House Education Committee is poised to hear testimony on several bills related to protecting the rights of parents and students in regards to privacy. (I plan to stop by around lunchtime to meet with folks and compare notes, msg me if you want to try to meet up. . .) From what […]

The Louisiana Department of Education rushed and ruined the implementation of Common Core, on purpose and for quick cash

February 10, 2014

I’ve been researching this story for close to 4 months now talking to local superintendents, teachers, parents, teacher leaders, and both pro and con Common Core folks. I’ve been following tips and reviewing internal documents that were sent out to school districts as well as listening to accounts of what local educational leaders were told […]

The backstory of EBR “cheating” scandal

January 24, 2014

4

Recently John White has been trying to stir up a lot of controversy about what he initially called a “cheating” scandal.  Here is one of the earlier reports of what is turning out to be a completely made up EBR cheating scandal.  He unloads quite a laundry list but to date has not been able to […]

Guest Blogger, PegLeg Mickey, returns with some ill tidings and tidbits

EBR Supe Pokes White in the Eye In the grogshop this week, I heard a snatch of conversation that warmed my rotten soul. There’s been a bit of story boiling up in the Advocate about the LDoE investigating East Baton Rouge Parish for cheating on tests and then it switched to graduation. Seems some counselor […]

An Ironic, Delusional, and Libelous attack against me by New Orleans Reform advocate, and latest fanclub inductee, Dawn Ruth

January 2, 2014

10

Recently a New Orleans publication called New Orleans Magazine published a piece that included a shoutout to me that was less than flattering and arguable libelous. This article was written by someone I had never met or heard of, and someone who never tried to contact me for her story. Nevertheless this “journalist” felt she […]

More John White lies about salaries, layoffs and raises

October 16, 2013

I tried to speak to John White’s credibility, or lack thereof, at the BESE meeting, (now yesterday) as I write this. I presented handouts that call into question White’s honesty on numerous issues. I gave handouts about the various inBloom memos and correspondence to each BESE member as well as a little bit of bonus […]

Is Student Privacy Hopeless?

October 6, 2013

0

(This will be a long one, and has some ranting folks, so buckle up.) Is student privacy hopeless? Sadly, this may be little more than a rhetorical question after the last week of horrible setbacks on the student privacy front. I’ve been gathering information and leads for months now, researching some, and holding onto others. I […]

I would like to thank all of you who came out to support our call to take back public education in Louisiana at the Rally this Saturday. I spoke with many parents and teachers (in both public and private schools) about their concerns about the federal Common Core Curriculum, and informed them of many other […]

Common Core Curriculum Rally – This is just the beginning. . .

October 1, 2013

10

The Stop the Common Core Curriculum Rally was held this Saturday and by most accounts was a remarkable success. While several media outlets tried to portray this as a Tea Party event, and while there were tea party folks there and who helped organize it, I had the privilege of meeting many parents, students and […]

More Teachers, Parents and Citizens speak out against CCSS (from across the political spectrum mainstream media)

K Teacher of 20 years I have been teaching for 191/2 years. I teach kindergarten. Most of my students are not ready for common core. When I read then a book and teach them a skill for example like predicting and ask them what I just taught them they would say you taught us about […]
