Discussion for Tuesday night how the LA Times and reporter Jason Felch are going after teachers with Value Added Assesements.
Our guest Tuesday night at 9 PM EDT is Carolyn Jacobson. Carolyn is a 13 year veteran English teacher at a Title 1 middle school in the Los Angeles Unified School District. She feared for the calculated destruction of public schools in 2002 when she was first introduced to "evaluating data" with NCLB. Her fears were verified in 2007 with a campaign speech given by Obama where he touted the tenants of his RTTT and Blueprint to come. Now she finds herself on the front lines against those market-based reforms being executed by a Broad bought Mayor and Board of Ed, a Broad trained Superintendent, who is also a former Gates Foundation Executive, and a media (major newspaper and two local TV stations) who cheer lead for the oligarchs and their minion - no surprise since they are owned by the Chicago Tribune...who are trying to sell to Broad. Carolyn can be found on Twitter @cajacobson
