Innovate Indy on Education Reform: Join us Jan. 5th!


On December 3rd a conversation began about education reform in Indianapolis. That conversation continues next on:  Thursday January 5th at 7:00pm at Big Car Service Center, 3919 N. Lafayette Road.

We will talk about authentic measures for learning and stopping the abuse of children by testing them.

Phil and Joan Harris from Bloomington, two of the three coauthors of:
The Myths of Standardized Tests: Why They Don't Tell You What You Think They Do
will join us to share their knowledge and we will discuss further activities to educate a wider community.

Matthew Brooks, coordinator for Opt- out Indiana will also join the discussion of how to protect our kids and our communities.

Adults please bring students to share their insights and add their voices to this vital discussion.

A tremendous concentration of wealth and political power has been focused in Indianapolis to drive an agenda of change in education. We find that agenda dangerously misinformed. We intend to inform and redirect that agenda toward the betterment of our neighborhoods, our schools and our children. We need the participation of parents, students, teachers and all concerned members of the community in order to accomplish this goal. Please join our conversation.

  7. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  9. I think everything published was very logical.

    But, consider this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?
    I am not saying your information is not solid., but what if you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Innovate Indy on Education Reform: Join us Jan. 5th!" is a little plain.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to get people to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything've
    written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
