1/26/12 Oregon Education Investment Board Public Hearing

The Oregon Education Investment Board is primed to rush legislation with inadequate public review that will profoundly change public education, permitting UO to opt out of the higher ed system with a private board.
It reinforces the assessment based movement with investment of human energy in collecting data for the P-20 Longitudinal Data Collection System. After ten years, we already know what assessment based outcomes looks like: failure of 50% of the schools in the country.
No additional assessment systems until more important and pressing issues are resolved such as class size, furlough days, and inadequate number of high school classes.
Enact no laws without more public discussion of unintended consequences of this NCLB rehash.
We need to promote the human component of education, the teachers and staff who are the connections that make a school a successful learning environment.
