A Network Connecting School Leaders From Around The Globe
FAILURE. AGAIN. We expect that again the negatives about charters will outweigh the positives, which remains baffling given the paltry results the majority of traditional education is getting, no matter what one’s income. With more than half of all funding every state raises and spends going to education, and with education spending at all levels at an all time high , we’re truly shocked that more people aren’t informed about the most recent controversy - namely dropping US performance on International Assessments.
The bi-annual Programme on International Student Assessment (PISA) by the OECD which reveals much more information about how and how much students work, student well-being and more. And of course, non-developing countries are far worse than the US. But you’d think we’d be able to be at the top and be helping all get a leg up… but we apparently can’t even help ourselves. HELLO?? What few words we could muster after the disappointing news was put into a statement for the media and is posted here. But alas, it was a one day story, while far less foundational issues to our country are dominating the papers.
