  At last!  The leaders of 350 teacher education programs have issued a bold statement in collaboration with the National Education Policy Center denouncing attacks on teacher education and market-based “remedies” that lack a sound research basis, and in some instances have already proven to widen disparities. Following a discussion of these trends, we present our alternative vision for teacher-education reform. Open the link to read the statement in full. It is short and won’t take more than five minutes of reading time. It is very encouraging to see the leaders of teacher education stand up for professionalism and research-based practice, and to take a stand against quackery from group  funded or   heavily endowed by billionaire foundations to launch charter schools and promote education technology that  marketize teacher education.'

The 'markets' are loving the propaganda about 'teaching' and offering very profitable 'alternatives' to schools, and now, alternatives of ways to 'train teachers.. Imagine if we trained doctors, instead of demanding they learn the disciplines that underlay their practice of medicine. Hospital want experts running the place, but top-down managers hire superintendents that help line their pockets.

Investigative journalist Jeff Bryant:a bombshell article about entrepreneurs who operate superintendent searches, then call on their Superintendents to buy professional development, technology, training, and other services.

The conflicts of interest and self-dealing are shocking. Districts lose millions of dollars and buy services they don't need, while the search service continues to pay them; 'previous investigations of school leadership search firms conducted by Our Schools have found companies frequently forego background checks of prospective candidates they recommend, promote favored candidates regardless of their experience or track record, & push board members to keep the entire search process, including the final candidates, confidential from public scrutiny.'
