    One last time: Standardized tests measure family income and family education. Teachers have little impact on those things.

    Dear Pearson Publishing; FYI, students who do not wish to remain silent about your bogus tests, are not criminals; this is America. #PARCC

    Giving "for profit" schools public money is welfare, plain and simple - unless your a Republican or Ed reformer that is.

    Teachers unions should be encouraging teachers to speak about the developmental inappropriateness of Common Core tests; not hushing them.

    Yes, I'd like to see human rights restored to The Ukraine; but I'd like to see human rights restored to American public school students too.

    It's really not that Democrats or Republicans have been conned on education; it's that both have joined together to con the public.

    Why is the U.S. giving testing $$ to a foreign corp like Pearson anyway? Don't we have idiots right here able to produce high stakes tests?
