Common Core and What is Coming
I remember from talking to a teacher in Pittsburgh (where coincidentally, this photo was taken), that she told me her school had a "data room" where any teacher in any class could see how every single student was doing AND look up all the data on them - discipline records, F/RL, etc. This appears to be such a room. She said the door was not locked and any adult could wander in there. Would you want other parents seeing this kind of thing?
I see a pink highlight on most of the students in the red section and fewer in the green or yellow sections but I don't know what it means.
From Seattle Education blog, a great video of a 4th-grade mom in Arkansas who uses her three-minutes before her school Board, to explain her deep unhappiness with Common Core. She even gets the board to interact with her (something you would never see here).
