For others, medical issues such as cancer serve as a reason for an exemption. Religion and conscience decision also qualify as valid reasons to be exempt.  view article  arw

Dallas trustees wrangle over pre-K charter school partnerships

February 1508:25 AM
 

Dallas school officials insist that the youngest learners would benefit from a deal that converts some nonprofit preschool classrooms into charter campuses that work within the district. DISD already works with various preschool providers for some prekindergarten classes, and making them in-district charter schools would allow them to get more state funding, administrators said at a Thursday board briefing. But calling anything in DISD a "charter" has tempers flaring. Critics say that's just a first step to privatizing public education. Trustees spent nearly three hours heatedly debating just how DISD would use a new state law aimed at spurring charter partnerships. view article  arw

Yes, Southlake is a bubble — a bubble of commitment to family

February 1508:25 AM
 

My first introduction to Southlake was as a Florida resident preparing to move to Texas. My wife, who was commuting to Dallas from Florida four days a week, said, via phone, "I visited this city, Southlake; we'd better not move there — the shopping is great and the people are very friendly." She was right. Southlake is a special place. After moving to Texas and living in a neighboring city, we experienced the amenities and the people firsthand. Every aspect of the town appeared well-thought-out, but it was the sense of community that bowled us over and made us first consider moving here. view article  arw

Don’t tie teacher merit pay to test scores

February 1508:25 AM
 

Former Texas Commissioner of Education Robert Scott appropriately acknowledged and warned in 2012 that the “focus on high-stakes testing is a perversion.” However, Scott was chastised and ignored at the time by Texas lawmakers determined to push more and more testing on our students and teachers. Since then, a growing number of leaders in Austin — typically policy makers with very limited teaching experience — have become obsessed with misusing student test data, often as a political tool to demonize our underfunded public schools and to promote their privatization. This has reached a critical turning point since legislation now has been introduced tying teacher pay to their students› test scores. Gov. Greg Abbott now is calling for “incentive pay” or “performance pay,” but any form of teacher compensation based on test results must be stopped.  view article  arw
