The Perfect Storm [Disaster] of Education Reform". This is an excellent article about "The Perfect Storm of Education Reform" by three scholars: It begins like this: No Child left behind (NCLB), Race to the Top (rt3), and now Common Core embody over a decade of federal and state education reform purport-edly designed to address inequities for global majority and low-income students.

All teacher's and parents should subscribe toDiane's daily posts, which nail the war on education in America and the world!

This link, will take you to all the articles on charter fraud, at the blog of Diane Ravitch former ass't Secretary of Education

This link is to the posts where legislatures are replacing local school boards, with not an educator on board.

Trust me, All teachers need to be informed about what is going on in 15,880 systems in 50 states-- this is a real, hidden assault on education".get em young and keep 'em dumb so you can re-write history, and create 'alternative facts' in this post-truth world. And enrich the corporations that push privatizations(this link is to my series)and sell testing.

Teachers cannot be ignorant about War on teachers and the profession
