"Opt-outs are no good for teachers and no good for parents," Elia told teachers and Albany City Schools Superintendent Marguerite Wyngaard. Albany City schools reported an estimated 16 percent non-compliance rate for the English Language Arts exams this year. Elia said the state needs to "repaint" the narrative surrounding Common Core standards.
Oh goodie - a rebranding effort on the Common Core.
People love a rebranding effort.
New Coke, for example.
Or the Syfy network.
Since Elia took $100K from Gates for teacher evaluations in her former district of Hillsborough, let's not forget the Microsoft rebrand with Windows 8 (It's a computer system...it's a cell phone system...it's both...it's neither...)
Ah, yeah - people love rebrands.
Can't wait to see how Long Island and Westchester parents receive Elia's "repainting" the Common Core narrative.
Can't wait to see how they receive her "opt out is no good for parents" message as well.
