Bennett Spins Lowering Teacher Standards
is was sent out yesterday on REPA.....the problem is that 1) the proposal as it sits doesn't say this; and 2) based on how this has been handled up to this point (i.e. rushing the process, vague details, and making it almost impossible for parents and teachers' voices to be heard), it's hard to believe him. Are we just supposed to take his word that he's made some kind of deal?? We think not.
Also, note that the DOE took the time to put this email together but forgot to put the link for public comment.....hmmm?? We only have a couple of days to post comments to the REPA Comment site
[ http://mustang.doe.state.in.us/dg/repa/Eval.cfm ] and this is our only recourse against this dangerous policy from a poor policy maker.
