2014 NH Families for Education Incumbent Voting Ratings

2014
NH Families for Education
Incumbent Voting Ratings


Incumbent ratings were based upon specific 2013-2014 roll call votes.   House members were evaluated on 5 roll call votes on education bills.  Keep in mind that all five bills were voted upon during a single session day, so some members were "absent" and thus have no score.   Senate members had too few critical education bills that were acted upon with Roll Calls. Voice votes are rampant in the Senate.

HOUSE Roll Call Votes:

  1. HB 1239 relative to implementation of new  educational standards. This bill requires the state board of education to report on the fiscal impact of implementing the college and career readiness standards, also known as the common core standards, and prohibits the board from implementing any new common core standards until the board performs a fiscal analysis and conducts a public hearing in each executive council district.
  2. HB 1262 relative to student assessment data privacy. This bill restricts the collection, storage, and sharing of student assessment data by the U. S. Department of Education and the N. H. department of education, allowing school districts the ability to protect personally identifiable, private student data.
  3. HB 1432 delaying implementation of certain statewide assessments and studying the effects of delaying implementation of certain curriculum changes in the public schools.  This bill would delay the implementation of Smarter Balanced assessments by two years.
  4. HB 1496 relative to the objectivity and validity of student assessment materials. This bill provides that a school districts shall not be required to administer any assessment which is not valid and appropriate, or which cannot be objectively scored.
  5. HB 1508 terminating state participation in the common core educational standards. This bill restores local control, by terminating state participation in the implementation of Common Core, allowing school districts to decide whether or not to implement Common Core.

Student Information and Certain Student Data is Not Merely the "Product" of Education -- It's Actually "Property"

By Laurie Rogers

If data is just a "product," it is a thing individual to itself, which can be bought and sold, as a tea cup or a pair of shoes. The powers seem to see it that way, something they can use and market -- rather than as something inherently ours, which no one can take from us without our permission. Our personal data is being taken from us without our permission -- often without our knowledge, without a warrant, and in the face of our objections, but we have the right under the Constitution to keep property that belongs to us. If people take our property without our permission, the courts call that "theft."

In my view, the lifting of personal data is an affront to our right to be secure in our persons and effects, which makes the data collection in conflict with the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."


Not all of the data being collected is pertinent to student work, or even to the student. Data is being collected ON the student, and ON the student's family and even on the family's outside relationships and history. It isn't work; it's intrinsic to a human being. It's intrinsic to people who are not technically part of the public school system. That is a part of being secure in our persons.

Is it an actual theft and redistribution of personal property? I think so. I wonder if a court – even such a court as one might find today – would think so. I think it could be successfully argued by someone reasonably well versed in constitutional law.

Why is a Monopoly in the K-12 Textbook Market Potentially Dangerous for Public Education?

Pearson Publishing owns 80% of the U.S. textbook market. 

Pearson also developed both Common Core aligned high-stakes assessments, Smarter Balanced Assessments and PARCC Assessments, which many have complained are more psychological and sociological than academic.

Below is just one example of how Pearson inappropriately inserts its own political bias into unrelated subjects, such as English grammar.

 

Protecting Local Control

Attached is a Tri-fold brochure on Protecting Local Control in New Hampshire:

Why the National Education Association (NEA) is asking for Arne Duncan's resignation.

Why the NH Commissioner of Education should also resign.

Which Candidates running for NH Senate or NH House of Representatives are opposed to Common Core?

NEA Passes Resolution Asking for Arne Duncan's RESIGNATION

Just how out of touch with parents, teachers and teachers' unions is Arne Duncan, promoting his controversial education agenda?

"Delegates to the National Education Association's annual convention passed a new business item July 4 calling for U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to resign.

"The surprising move comes on the heels of union anger over moves across the United States to revise due-process protections, tenure, and seniority—some of which have been supported by Democrats, including the Obama administration."

 

The NEA Representative Assembly joins other educators and parents in calling for the resignation of U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan for the Department’s failed education agenda focused on more high-stakes testing, grading and pitting public school children against each other based on test scores and for continuing to promote policies and decisions that undermine public schools and colleges, the teaching profession, education professionals and education unions. 

Rationale: Secretary Duncan once again showed his lack of understanding of education law and policy, his disregard of the true challenges facing our students and schools, and his disrespect for the hard-working educators in our schools and colleges across the country when he tweeted, “Today’s court decision is a mandate to fix these problems.” immediately following the flawed verdict in Vergara v. State of California, striking down laws protecting teachers from arbitrary firings, supporting due process rights and providing transparency in layoff decisions. While educators recognize the administration’s focus on bringing more resources to public education, the policies of Secretary Duncan from Race to the Top, to NCLB waivers, to teacher evaluation have been more top-down, one-size-fits-all mandates focused on high-stakes testing and using test scores to punish students, educators and schools. Since the beginning, Duncan’s department has been led by graduates of the Broad Academy, Education Trust-West and other organizations determined to scapegoat teachers and their unions. Most recently, some of these former Obama administration staffers announced a national campaign attacking educators’ rights. Authentic education change only comes when all stakeholders – teachers, parents, administrators and the community – work together to best meet the needs of the students in their school or college. Teachers are not the problem. Teachers are part of the solution. And it’s time we have a Secretary of Education who understands and believes that.

 

Arne Duncan should have taken notice of a previous warning by the NEA, teachers' union.

On July 3, 2011 the National Education Association's legislative body  adopted the following resolution:

The NEA Representative Assembly directs the NEA President to communicate aggressively, forcefully, and immediately to President Barack Obama and US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan that NEA is appalled with Secretary Duncan’s practice of:

1. Weighing in on local hiring decisions of school and school district personnel.

2. Supporting local decisions to fire all school staff indiscriminately, such as his comments regarding the planned firings in Central Falls, RI.

3. Supporting inappropriate use of high-stakes standardized test scores for both student achievement and teacher evaluation, all while acknowledging that the currently available tests are not good.

4. Failing to recognize the shortcomings of offering to support struggling schools or states, but only in exchange for unsustainable state ‘reform’ policy.

5. Focusing too heavily on competitive grants that by design leave most students behind-particularly those in poor neighborhoods, rural areas, and struggling schools-instead of foundational formula funding designed to help all the students who need the most support.

6. Not adequately addressing the unrealistic Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) requirements that brand thriving or improving schools as failures.

7. Forcing local school districts to choose from a pre-determined menu of school improvement models that are unproven and have been shown to be ineffective and bear little resemblance to the actual needs of the school that is struggling.

8. Focusing so heavily on charter schools that viable and proven innovative school models (such as magnet schools) have been overlooked, and simultaneously failing to highlight with the same enthusiasm the innovation in our non-charter public schools.

9. Failing to recognize both the danger inherent in overreliance on a single measurement and the need for multiple indicators when addressing and analyzing student achievement and educators’ evaluations.

10. Failing to recognize the need for systemic change that helps ALL students and relies on shared responsibility by all stakeholders, rather than competitive grant programs that spur bad, inappropriate, and short-sighted state policy.

11. Failing to recognize the complexities of school districts that do not have the resources to compete for funding, particularly in rural America, and failing to provide targeted and effective support for those schools and school districts.

12. Failing to respect and honor the professionalism of educators across this country, including but not limited to holding public education roundtables and meetings without inviting state and local representatives of the teachers, education support professionals, and faculty and staff; promoting programs that lower the standards for entry into the profession; focusing so singularly on teachers in the schools that the other critical staff members and higher education faculty and staff have been overlooked in the plans for improving student learning throughout their educational careers.

13. Perpetuating the myth that there are proven, top-down prescribed ‘silver bullet’ solutions and models that actually will address the real problems that face public education today, rather than recognizing that what schools need is a visionary Secretary of Education that sets broad goals and tasks states, local schools districts, schools, educators, and communities with meeting those goals.

Further, the NEA Representative Assembly directs the NEA Executive Committee to develop and implement an aggressive action plan in collaboration with state and local leaders that will address the issues above.

Claiming "White Privilege" Racially Divides Communities and is Being Used as an Excuse to Destroy Public Education


Claiming “white privilege" is designed to provoke guilt and divide the community against itself.

Advocates against "white privilege" want to narrow the achievement gap in schools by eliminating leveling.  However, eliminating leveling in middle school and high school will not help anyone.  There is absolutely no evidence that de-leveling closes any academic gaps.  None. This is an age old education reform fad that was previously tried and failed.

Eliminating levels will result in lowered expectations for the entire student body.  Mixed ability level classes demand the use of “differentiated instruction,” a teaching method which requires intensive ongoing training and smaller class sizes to be effective.

De-leveling is far more likely to discourage both highly motivated students and under motivated students alike. Neither will be able to get the instruction they need given the disparity in the classroom.  Teachers will not be able to provide the challenges that some students want, while also providing the support and remediation that others need.  Everyone: students, teachers and parents alike will be discouraged and disappointed with the outcome of de-leveling.  

At the recent Common Core forum in St. Anselm, one panelist argued that he had unearned "white privilege." 

"The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today, is that as a white male in society, I was given a lot of privilege that I didn't earn."  Common Core Debate, May 19, 2014 at St. Anselms College, NH Institute of Politics, Manchester, NH -- Min. 1:52:00

Supposedly this is why he helped write the Common Core ELA standards.  Never mind the fact that he’s a history teacher writing English standards, this protestation of "white privilege" does not ring true.

If Dr. David Pook had any genuine regret over his "white privileged" upbringing -- or any real interest in helping the disadvantaged students of color, -- he'd immediately resign his position at the elite Derryfield school and get to work in an urban inner city public school.  Pook refuses to do that.

Bemoaning "white privilege" doesn't help anyone. It is cheap trick which is being used nationwide to further a radical political agenda.  It exploits the suffering of one group of society and pits them against another group.

Basing education philosophy upon "white privilege" does not improve education, nor will it build our sense of community.  In fact, it is designed to further damage those it pretends to help.

 

 

In Chicago the federal government has approved a No Child Left Behind Waiver that provides for a radical approach to rating public schools.  Illinois students of different racial backgrounds no longer will be held to the same standards Latinos and blacks, low-income children and other groups will have lower targets than whites and Asians for passing state exams. Creation of these racial groups and variable standards is the subject of much criticism.

Seems that education reformers not only want lower standards for minority students, but also to prevent students with "white privilege" from moving ahead of their peers.
