Sign Here to Call for Repeal of Cuomo Education Bill!
After preaching on education last week, and immersing myself in the literature this week, it is clear that poverty and racial isolation – what Jonathan Kozal calls “caste and color” – are the real problems with education. I’m throwing in with this petition and invite you to do so as well if you live in New York.
A group of education leaders in New York have drafted an appeal to suspend implementation of the “Education Transformation Act of 2015” and to convene a panel of educators and educational experts to design a research-based teacher evaluation system.
They hope to get 10,000 signatures. They have gathered nearly half that number. If you are a New Yorker, please sign so the Legislature and the Regents will begin the process of revising a truly terrible program that is guaranteed to demoralize teachers, discourage students, and produce more teaching to the test.
