Special Education vs General Education
As the number of school children diagnosed with special needs soars, many schools face bankruptcy in their attempts to meet federal mandates to serve this demographic. Like other areas of public education, special education is in serious need of reform.

Stop Devaluing Standard English in the Schools
Language is the vehicle of education and the transmission of culture. Teachers especially need to value their native language and its literature. It is not enough to be a math teacher or P.E. teacher. All teachers must be English teachers.

Subscribing to the School Reform Newsletter
Concerned about government-mandated school reforms? Want some help in making sure your child gets the most from public education? Sign up for the School Reform newsletter.

Teacher Evaluation Scam
Public education is falling prey to the educational consulting scams proliferating as a result of the latest corporate approach to school reform. The Danielson Group is making millions offering services that an educated school workforce ought to be able to do for themselves.

Teacher Preparation Grades 7-12
Professional educators in control of teacher preparation concern themselves more with theory than with the practical considerations of teaching real children in real school settings. A first step in meaningful education reform would be to break the stranglehold of university education departments.

Teacher Preparation Grades K-6
K-6 teachers have a far greater influence on the future of their pupils than do high school teachers. They can mean the difference between success or failure in the upper grades. They deserve the best possible teacher preparation.

The Latest in Edu-Speak
Parents and teachers who don't want to be deceived as to the purpose and probable effects of the Common Core Standards need to recognize the script. Challenge school administrators and journalists to use their own thought out words when discussing the CCSS.

The Testing Opt-Out Movement
Parents and teachers distressed by the effect of ever-increasing state-mandated standardized testing of younger and younger children are at the heart of a grassroots movement to resist what they see as a mindless process that has little to do with education or the mental well-being of children.

Third Grade Reading Law
Thirteen states have passed Third Grade retention laws. Children who fail to learn to read well enough to do fourth grade work will repeat the third grade.

Time to Make Better Use of High School
It's time for parents and students to stop viewing high school as an extension of childhood. As college becomes unaffordable to more and more young people, better use needs to be made of tax-supported educational opportunities.
