What the…?

This is honestly mindblowing. The mind boggles.

It’s Sunday, so naturally I have no time to write about this, but just…. what the hell?

  1. Wow! Had no idea about this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Um

    “But the Florida Department of Education said the goals recognize that not every group is starting from the same point and are meant to be ambitious but realistic.” Explain how/why that doesn’t make sense? They’re setting growth goals based on where they’re starting. They aren’t dumbing down the expectation or lowering the standard. They’re acknowledging reality. That seems like a very healthy place to actually begin achieving change.

  3. Of all the government decisions I have ever read this is the most offensive and we must protest this in writing. Clearly with technology we are more capable than ever to have individual profiles. However demotes a teachers professionalism and clumps the chumps approach by race. From the students shoes the top performer that doesn’t fit into your preordained assumptions is given the message they must be untrue to their race or untrue to their potential. Whomever made this rule up should be placed on the bottom tier of leadership in education.
