So the panel suggested the Regents and SED functionaries be forced to attend ten hours of Common Core training and PD per week for the next three years as part of the...
Nahh - just kidding.
Cuomo's Common Core panel wants more training for teachers, of course:
The report supports local professional development opportunities for teachers as well as a plan that would “showcase” examples of successful implementation in a local area. Schools successfully implementing Common Core would be highlighted for other local teachers and principals.
Oh goodie - more Common Core PD!
Just what I was looking for.
Meanwhile the arrogant people who put all of these reforms together at the Board of Regents and the Gates Foundation, er, New York State Education Department get off scott free.
No accountability for either the Regents or the SED functionaries.
Here's hoping the legislature sends a message tomorrow by throwing some of them out.
Just what we need.
Hope it's done by the same geniuses who created the SED modules.
