The Education Reform Movement Has Failed America

This article is an important read for those who really care about public education. It is time to change the narrative on how we support our teachers, administrators and most importantly, our students. Mandated testing is hurtful on so many levels.....We must focus on smaller class size.

From George W. Bush to Trump, administrations have pushed education reforms that have failed to improve results. Time for common sense.

“A better working environment for Virginia teachers translates into a better learning environment for our students. It’s time that teachers have a seat at the table. This is OUR time.”

Virginia Beach Education Association President Kelly Walker represented VEA at today’s press conference supporting a bill by Delegate Elizabeth Guzman that would grant public employees the right to collective bargaining with their employers. The “Stronger Communities: A Better Bargain” coalition is fighting on behalf of Guzman’s bill. Joining VEA in the coalition are Virginia AFL-CIO; The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME); The American Federation of Teachers (AFT); The Communications Workers of America (CWA); Service Employees International Union (SEIU); The Virginia Professional Fire Fighters (VPFF) and The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW).

"It's really scary because you don't know what's going on and you know you're going to have a seizure, but then once it happens you're just gone," she said.

Brie Gesick, a middle school student in Virginia Beach, was also 7 years old.

Despite the number of people living with the seizure disorder, epilepsy is still misunderstood by many, including some educators.

Feel good Monday!!

Aircraft are being used to drop thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potato to hungry wildlife stranded amid the Australian bush-fire crisis.

Act Now to Gain a Voice on the Job in Virginia - VEA

This can be a GAME CHANGER!

A new bill just introduced in the Virginia General Assembly by Del. Elizabeth Guzman would give educators (and other public employees) the right to engage in collective bargaining with their local school divisions.

What does that mean? It means the ability to negotiate needed changes like more resources for student programs, smaller class sizes—and your salaries and benefits—is within your grasp.

The Answer for Schools Is Not More Technology. It’s Teachers and Human Connection. - EdSurge News

This article is part of the guide A Decade in Review: Reflections on 10 Years in Education Technology.

This op-ed is part of a series of reflections on the past decade in education technology. Danielle Arnold-Schwartz is a teacher of elementary gifted students with experience teaching grades K-9 in public school settings.

A kindergarten teacher recently told me that at conference night one of her student’s parents verbally attacked her for using Chromebooks during morning meeting time. This teacher uses Chromebooks responsibly and is a wonderful teacher, but deep down I couldn’t help but cheer as I wondered, “Could it be that parents are waking up to the realization that too much screen time is part of what ails our education system?” (http://ow.ly/kDoz50xKAFS)
