We must stop this travesty in CT. Please read and share.
Please watch the testimony given today and ignored.
CEA Educational Issues Specialist Michele O’Neill was one of many who raised concerns about Relay at today’s State Board of Education meeting.
In spite of serious concerns raised by teachers, CEA leaders and staff, state university deans of education, and community members, the State Board of Education today voted to allow the controversial Relay Graduate School of Education to begin operating in Connecticut. Relay provides a shortcut to teacher certification whose methods and outcomes have repeatedly been called into question.
“Relay teachers do not receive the same training other teachers do,” said CEA President Sheila Cohen. “Instead, they are given a crash course in teaching that focuses on increasing student test scores, not student skills. There are no do-overs for the students whose classrooms are managed by unprepared, inexperienced teachers who weave their way into the profession through these dubious, subpar teacher training programs.”

As Nan Schult says, it all moves so fast. One facet of the Big Money educational profiteering game gets exposed, and another hides, waiting in the shadows. I just read that one of the Walton offsrping is carefully disguising his name now, as he pushes his company’s charter school involvement. They KNOW they are wrong, yet they can’t stop their greed.
