The prolific Peter Greene wrote two posts for New Year’s Day 2017.


This post contains a positive agenda for all those who care about education. We are all familiar with the attacks on public schools and teachers. We spend a lot of time saying NO: no to privatization, no to high-stakes testing, no to rating and ranking students based on test scores, no to evaluating teachers by test scores, no to bonus pay based on test scores, no to for-profit charters, no to public funding of religious schools.


Peter offers his list of the 9 things he wishes for.


1. Get rid of the Big Standardized tests that now rule schools.


2. Fair and equitable funding for all schools.


That’s two. Read the other 7 —and offer your own.
