Anyone but the federal government
The local community as a whole
Parents who are provided a choice of where to enroll their child
I have my opinion but am more interested in hearing what you have to say.
Rigorous and well-aligned standards for teaching students
Community-based support services
School choice and high expectations for student achievement
A well-trained teaching workforce
A lack of focus on external factors (non-school factors)
A lack of school choice, which has led to a system mired in mediocrity
Overemphasizing high stakes assessments
The belief that more money can fix schools
That pesky federal government
Continued economic success
It’s a national babysitting program… or is it something else?
Socialization and promoting democracy
While I support the standards, their success will depend on changes in teacher-student relationships.
High expectations will lead to higher student achievement.
Different standards are not going to solve the problems in our schools.
I think they have potential, but success will depend on well-trained teachers.
I’m coming around to them.
Instructional practices that are closely aligned with high stakes assessments
Research-based methods that are supported by school leadership
A barn raising approach where the teacher acts as moderator and students support each other in the process
Student driven activities that relate school with the current reality of students’ lives
Teaching strategies focused on rigorous standards
Strengthening the relationship between teachers, students, and standards
Empower teachers to take more active leadership roles and help middling teachers grow towards excellence
Support teacher and leadership development
Institute a high expectations, no excuse approach to learning
Bringing in external partners to help the school address the conditions in which the students live
I approve of any model that focuses on school improvement without identifying increase revenues as the solution to all ailments.
A restart model where the school is closed and reopened by a charter management organization (CMO).
A transformation model where teacher and school leader effectiveness are developed along with improvements to instructional strategies and increased learning time
Close the school and consolidate students at higher preforming schools. Wait… does that sound right?
School closings should only be a last resort. Educational authorities must help schools solve their problems through professional development, targeted improvement programs, and specific interventions that will strengthen the school’s capacity to educate its students.
No evaluations necessary. Just let teachers do what teachers do best and support them in the process.
Evaluations based on student surveys and mastery of standards.
No accurate or high quality teacher evaluation model can be achieved until it takes into account all factors affecting student achievement.
It should be based on student performance on high stakes, rigorous assessments.
Observations conducted by principals, instructional leaders, and high quality, experienced teachers.
Charter schools are killing America.
Any method is acceptable as long as it is financially responsible.
Charter management organizations are the best! They are one of the key levers for raising student achievement.
Charter schools are an effective means of improving schooling, but they should work with districts instead of competing against them.
Charter schools can provide more freedom for schools to focus on the instructional core.
