Here’s another assortment of news stories and blog posts on education.

  • Please sign and forward this White House petition, written by a High School Student, to reduce standardized testing. (please do it – once the petition reaches 100,000 signatures, it is guaranteed a response from the White House).

  • Is the opt-out movement on the road to victory? According to this writer, it just might be.
  • “Always Earning” “No Profit Left Behind.” Politico has takes a close look at Pearson, one of the corporations that has benefited the most from the current reform movement. Shockingly, Pearson still makes money, even when they don’t deliver what they promise. Crazy how accountability only applies to teachers.
  • “You have made us the enemy – This is Personal.” In this piece, seven teachers of the year blast Cuomo’s proposals. Thanks to Karla Roberts for sharing the link .
