September 1st, 2014

** “Education is in something of a Catch-22. If they have standards, there will be dropouts among people who don’t want to do the work to reach the minimum levels. If they don’t have standards, they are just an assembly line and that is bad for teacher morale. Because who is going to get blamed if students don’t succeed? Teachers.” ~ News Staff, science20.com

** “For evaluations and observations to have a meaningful impact on educators and the students they teach, educators must have the personalized resources and support they need to improve practice and spur professional growth. Without this connection, evaluations are merely compliance.” ~ Chet D. Linton, CEP, School Improvement Network

** “Investing in a college degree may be more important than ever before because those who fail to do so are falling further and further behind.” ~ from a Federal Reserve Bank of New York report

** “Public opinion is split on how well the nation’s schools educate students of different abilities. In 2013, Education Next asked the public whether local schools did a good job of teaching talented students. Seventy-three percent said the local schools did ‘somewhat’ or ‘extremely’ well at the task, compared to only 45 percent who thought that was true of their capacity to teach the less-talented.” ~ Eric A. Hanushek
