This is a video that uses the music of “Alice’s Restaurant.”

It is filled with every bit of jargon and pedagogical nonsense that is now official policy in New York state and the nation.

Watch this, listen to the steady flow of mandates, bureaucratese, official baloney, data-driven evaluation, and ask yourself:

What does any of this verbal trash have to do with education?

How does it relate to things of the mind, the heart, character, citizenship, knowledge, the life of children?

Listen, watch, and then decide whether to laugh or cry.

APPR is how you rate, teachers in New York State.

After you listen, if  you are offended by this nuttiness, go here and sign on with the principals of New York State who agree.
