A Teachable Moment

Former local teacher union pesident Morty Rosenfeld periodically attempts to make sense of the increasingly senseless world of public education.

Occupy Dep’t of Ed

For those who think it’s impossible to build a coalition to oppose and defeat test driven education reform, look at what United Opt Out has planned for this coming weekend in Washington. Billed as a legal Occupy the Department of Education, it sounds more like the teach-ins of my day, at which people gather around an issue of concern and exchange ideas on what needs to be done. One way or another, it is the latest example of a growing dissatisfaction of teachers and parents with testing mania. Conspicuously absent from this teach-in are America’s two great teacher unions, AFT and NEA.
