shimauma commented on Harry Mathews's blog post A serious rant about education jargon and how it hurts efforts to improve schools
""Involved in community efforts" is an immediate liberal dog whistle for me. Makes my skin crawl every time I hear it."

AZ Merit Victory?

Just received a call from KIM HILGERS(??) She told me she has a position in the Superintendent's office for TUHSD. She said they are happy to let my daughter get a pass from the office to stay in the library while the test is going on and read quietly, or she may stay home without penalty.
I think it's a victory at least for my kid.
This contact from the Superintendent's office did say that while it might not be legal to make kids take it now, the local school…

Brent Brown, Corona Del Sol principal threatens the educational career of his student

I sent a letter to my child's principal saying I was opting her out of the AZ Merit test. He replied back in such a way as to tell me she wasn't allowed to opt out and that I wasn't allowed to share this information with anyone.

here is the email he sent:

 

I want to respond to your e-mail and let you know that In light of the Attorney General's letter sent out to all educators, we do not offer opt-out options for the AZ Merit test or any mandatory achievement tests…

Hi TJ!

Now I'm curious about something - do they distribute a "rules" sheet before the beginning of the meeting? Isn't there a period (at the beginning and/or end of the meeting) for Public Comment where you are allowed to make comment on something that ISN'T on the agenda?

Thank you for inviting me to participate in this group!

they do an instructional video of how to submit stuff for the agenda. They only discuss items on the agenda. I submitted a request in writing at the end of the meeting I went to and I sent them a reminder email today. I will post the link for email addys of the board members to this page and my pages on resistnet and smartgirlpolitics today.

I'm glad you accepted the invite. I bet your educated input on this board will be valuable. I only just heard about international baccalaurette a couple of years ago when I lived in Minnesota; there was a short spat of trying to get it implemented but I never heard if it passed. I got the gist of it then and was glad to be moving to what I thought was a more conservative state. Silly me....I missed the migration of progressive snow birds that make their home here every year. I just hope I don't blow this and make the myself look stupid. I have a very hard time expressing myself with regards to speaking my mind.

Wow! I had no idea that was going on in Bastrop. I just drove through there over the weekend. That's awesome - Go Bastrop!

GREAT JOB getting Truth About IB linked to Michelle Malkin's site, TJ! I see we've gotten quite a few hits from there yesterday and today! You GO girl!

TJ,

I don't think there are a lot of people who are comfortable speaking before an educational "board", or in public in general, for that matter. It is very nerve-wracking, especially if you know in advance that they view you as "the enemy". Stick to the facts - the outrageous cost - a "want" not a "need" - loss of local control - and cite the recent rejection of IB in Bastrop - Deborah did a great job down there cutting IB off at the pass. Use that quote of hers in the Bastrop special announcement - it's powerful. Your job is harder as they have already invested money into IB in your district and they don't want to "lose face". Let me know which Tea Party group has decided to back you and I'll post a link to their meetings on the Mesa page.

And now I'm going to make you write Baccalaureate 10x. ;-)

hugs,
Lisa

TJ,

    The Mesa school board meeting tomorrow night is going to discuss funding for IB - this might a good time to speak and say "Nah!"

Yo TJ,

     The Mesa Red Mountain Tea Party School Board Oversight Committee is forming an IB subcommittee to investigate the goings on with IB in Mesa schools. They are putting the finishing touches on a FOIA request for info regarding IB including receipts, checks etc. They need people who would be willing to comb the data that they get in order to get all the dirt on IB. Are you interested?
