Betsy DeVos Pushes Online Learning

More testing/more screen time/less teachers--we need to beware of blended learning and online learning and computer-driven lesson plans: it's not good for public schools. “Anytime and anywhere” looks like a costly approach to education.

Para padres que tienen niños de menos de 5 años -- ven a este programa en la biblioteca!

[02/15/17]   Here is a sample email I sent to the House Appropriations Committee:
Dear Washington House Appropriations Committee,

I am writing to you to ask you to support HB 1843 (Democrat proposed education plan), but fund it with new progressive revenue, such as the proposals in Governor Inslee's budget.

Please do NOT support SB 5607 (Republican proposed education plan). SB 5607 is unacceptable. It cuts funding for children living in poverty, suggests fiscal penalties for absences/tardiness which are unfair and unhelpful, and eliminates or deeply infringes on teachers' right to strike. I support my teachers and feel they are know the most about schools and schoolchildren's needs. If they feel a strike is critical, they need that tool to effect change.

Thank you,
Robin Schwartz

Please comment below with your email address and I will send you the list of legislative email addresses so that you can copy my email or adapt it. Legislators need to hear from us!!

Happening right now at South Park branch library! Until 7pm!

What Outraged Parents Can Do to Defend Public Education After the Confirmation of Betsy DeVos

Rough day for public school supporters. Two things I plan to do: involve the SP Neighborhood Association in our situation as a school community that needs advocacy in an inhospitable federal administration, and go to FairTest to ask about standardized testing reform information in multiple languages. We stand together for Concord and public schools! No other education secretary nominee was ever in danger of being rejected by the Senate. Until Betsy DeVos. Teachers, education activists, teachers unions, and most especially ordinary parents show…
