US DOE Promises Funding Cuts To States Who Miss Participation Rates Two Years In A Row, Contact President Obama Now!

Reflections of a Second-career Math Teacher

Anyone with children in public schools in the US should read the letter from the US DOE at this blog.

It is accountability run amok, and borderline fascism. Bureaucrats just love to make threats from their bully pulpits, whether at local, state, or federal levels.

While monitoring some relevant measure(s) over time in return for receipt of federal funds earmarked for specific use is prudent, coercively mandating near census level approaches constitutes federal overreach, tramples on the rights of parents, and ignores less onerous, more effective statistical methods.

Is this what we want from our federal government?

About Dave aka Mr. Math Teacher

Secondary math teacher teaching math intervention, algebra 1, honors precalculus, and AP Calculus AB. I spent 25 years in high tech in engineering, marketing, sales and business development roles in the satellite communications, GPS, semiconductor, and wireless industries. I am awed by the potential in our nation's youth and I hope to instill in them the passion to improve our world at local, state, national, and global levels.
