Louisiana’s Privacy Legislation and Testimony – Setting the Record Straight

March 25, 2014

3

On March 19th the Louisiana House and Senate Education Committee’s both heard testimony at the same time on the same types of legislation. This legislation was about student privacy. Holding meetings on the same subject at the same time required folks to split up their resources. Since most of us do not have ready doppelgangers, […]

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.

My Review of Proposed Privacy Legislation for Louisiana

March 16, 2014

17

My apologies for not getting to this topic (and many others I’ve neglected) sooner. I may have finally bitten off more than I can effectively chew in things I’ve agreed to do. I have the best of intentions, I promise you, but sometimes my eagerness to help everyone runs smack into the limiting reality of […]

Defies Measurement Update

About a month ago I was lucky to receive a visit from the blog’s favorite videographer, Shannon Puckett. Here’s one of my last posts about her documentary project: http://crazycrawfish.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/defies-measurement-is-almost-funded/ In addition to the interview she did with me about my time at LDOE I got to chat with her about other cool issues while she […]

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

February 10, 2014

20

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 […]

The RSD and New Orleans miracle (of cheating)

December 29, 2013

7

Some of you may have read by my recent expose on the issues facing Mary D. Coghill elementary school (an RSD school which was turned into a Park View charter school this year without any internal records or discussion of why this was done.) I asked why this was done, and some basic info about […]

My attempt at completing my first grader’s Common Core math homework – and a little historical CCSS context

November 15, 2013

163

I know that many people are thinking the commotion over Common Core, CCSS, is much ado about nothing.  I’ve heard some folks liken this change to the Affordable Care Act (AKA) Obamacare.  There are some similarities to how these things were implemented and rolled out nationwide, but while the ACA was voted on by national elected officials, […]
