One Response to Round-Up of APS Headlines from the Past Week

  1. Beverly Fraud says:

    From Carstarphen:

    So how do we get into “good” trouble? How do we change our organizational culture so that the needs of children are the top priority

    1) Protect the sanctity of the learning environment by empowering teachers to remove severely and chronically disruptive students who hijack the learning process

    2) Protect teachers from administrative retaliation so they can be EMPOWERED to get into “good trouble” by speaking to issues of concern (such as lack of support for discipline, being asked to implement “researched based” pseudo reform that REAL research shows to be rubbish (i.e. the vast majority of ”reforms” APS teachers have been asked to implement over the past decade, reforms that do NOT replace discipline.)””’

    ZERO talk of SPECIFIC policies for each of the above = ZERO chance of success

    Don’t say you weren’t told
