Education Advocate Wendy Lecker has another column out and it is once again in the "MUST READ" category.
Here is Wendy Lecker's latest MUST READ commentary piece, which first appeared in the Stamford Advocate.
Failure as a model for Connecticut (By Wendy Lecker)
Common Core jeopardizes foundation of learning (By Wendy Lecker)
Fellow Connecticut educate advocate Wendy Lecker has been one of the most powerful and important voices on behalf of public education and against the corporate education reform industry's unending assault of public school teachers, public schools and the rights of students and parents. While many policymakers, education administrators and even the organizations responsible for protecting and promoting public education have turned a blind eye or engaged in the politics of appeasement, Wendy Lecker has continued to speak the truth and promote the notion that a just society strengthens not undermines its commitment to a comprehensive public education system.
In her latest piece entitled, Core jeopardizes foundation of learning, and initially published in the Stamford Advocate, Wendy Lecker takes down the claim that the "Common Core" is the "Solution" to the challenges facing the nation's public schools.
