Those of you feeling any combination of hatred, frustration or loathing for your employer, run don't walk to the latest happy talk letter to teachers in the latest newsletter. Allow the balm of FMM's encouragement and sincerity gently wash over you and be healed of all that concerns you. Come unto him and walk with joyful expectation into the 2013-14 school year. For now, refresh yourself right over there with a sip if a refreshing grape flavored drink...

It would appear that not much needs to be said about the STAARS results!  It will be interesting to see how the statistics will be used.  You can prove anything with statistics!!  

Perhaps the blog topic needs to be changed now that school is finally out!  What a charade was this last week of school.  With the "good students" eliminated the "bad ones" had to attend school.  Wonder how many absences were accrued.

Mr. Bill Betzen, what part of Elementary School Classrooms do you do not understand. The state is creating a group of third class CITEZEN and they are not General Ed students. I wonder if you are one of the problems instead of a permanent fix. If you feel go ahead and recommend the California approach. That will be a picture perfect of STUPIDITY.

I bet my family jewels you are not ESL/ESOL endorsed!

Gee!  I wonder who is going to test and teach those bilingual 5th grades students. Gen. Ed. does not qualify for the job. Is Mr. FMM going to break the rules again? Is Mr. FMM going to give those teachers back their stipend? He knows that 10 to dime Gen. Ed. teachers are nothing in a bilingual classroom. Let see how he plays this one. My best wishes Mr. FMM.

I hear DISD is having a hard time staffing summer school positions. Hmmmm wonder why???? Could it have something to do with promised spot observations and expectations of MRS DOLLO all during the summer school sessions and at only $20.00 an hour to boot. Well good luck with that! The powers that be are probably upset they can't demand teachers just show up for summer school.

Could you please drop down that clock, telling us how much time is slipping past us? It is very depressing, and we don't need to be reminded every time we hit this site.

I think people are just exhausted.  There is not much anyone can do with the data as the cut points are so low they are only 8-10 items above random guessing and it has little meaning the way they presented it.  It shows they are test and adult oriented and not child oriented. 

They present "first-time" tested results.  Who cares. It lacks ecological validity or has no real world relevance.  The whole point of the STAAR test is to measure graduation (now 5 tests).  Freshman in fall 2011 are the graduating class of 2015.  The district needs to present STAAR information based on the graduating classes of 2015 and 2016. How many Algebra I, English I, etc.  exams were passed, failed, not taken yet. Why is the district masking this information?

@Pancho Villa

The DISDblog published two articles last fall regarding the request of DISD for this alarming number of class size waivers.  DISD declared "financial hardship," and yet still managed to pay inflated salaries for administrators AND put money into the reserves.

The DMN reported 92 schools were affected in DISD; that translated to 435 classrooms, mostly at the kindergarten and first grade levels.

PLEASE let it be so! Maybe DISD's contempt for teachers will come home to roost. Let the permanent subs they've used all year do summer school. Or, bring in the TFA'ers a little early.

Glass half empty?  We've actually received over 10 emails from readers who love it. It will stay although we have moved it down to the bottom of the page so it's not so "in your face".

As I stated before, those classroom 90%+ are NOT Gen. Ed classrooms.

I know of two of those 495,  K-A 29 Students, K-B 24 Students both NON Gen. Ed.

I hate this clock also. School isn't even over yet. I'd like to enjoy a few weeks of summer before the countdown begins.

Thanks for moving it. Much better.

We know words are powerful and ideas even more so. Profanity isn't really necessary for emphasis or a substitute for passion here. Thank you.

Foundation for Empowerment (FCE) released 3 papers:

1. Disruptive Change: Mike Miles and the Crisis In Dallas ISD, which has been prepared with consultation by education academics, extensive research, review of data and education literature, and meetings and interviews with people of Dallas holding varying and sometimes conflicting points of view;

2. Digging Into Data and Evidence: Mike Miles, Dallas ISD, and Trickle-Down Education Report, by Dr. Julian Vasquez Helig, Lindsay Redd, M.A. and Dr. Ruth Vail; and

3. The Challenge of Disruptive Leadership in Dallas ISD, by Decoteau J. Irby, Ph.D. and Matthew Birkhold, M.A.

"You will see from these papers that, after much research and discussion, we believe the current Superintendent [Mike Miles] lacks the pedagogical, leadership and integrity qualities necessary to lead Dallas ISD and recommend the Board terminate his contract."

"Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people in order to betray them." --Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
