@FairTestOffice panel at the #maedu hearing: -emphasizes that other states are moving away from high stakes assessment (37 states don't have an exit exam) -tests played a role in illuminating inequity, but have done nothing to address it -teachers assess students all day long

Overall, alternative models - like @MassCIEA - can inform positive changes to the existing accountability system, which (though demonstrably flawed) will not be dropped any time soon. #MAedu

Now @Edu_Historian, 3 points: 1) Standardized tests measure family income, race & parental education 2) Standardized tests don't measure the really important things good schools do 3) Standardized tests incentivize teaching to the test, narrowing curriculum etc #MAedu

More good points from @lguisbond: -decades of high stakes testing hasn't led to changes in outcomes for low-income students or students of color. -MA is behind the trend of other states that have removed test-based barriers to graduation #MAedu

#maedu update: testimony now on H. 431 - the moratorium on high stakes testing. @Mass_CPS panel: "the system is doing exactly what it was supposed to do - maintain privilege."

Quoted @radiokeri

It must suck to go through all the effort of writing an op-ed (which ends up being the same old convoluted personal attack) and then not have it printed. I mean l, when I write op-eds they get published, so I don’t know that feeling personally, but I have to imagine it’s bad. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Commonwealth only published you because it’s summer. #mapoli #MAEdu

#maedu hearing: @senjehlen testifying in favor of S.296, which would require the use of growth, not achievement, in measuring student performance. "if we're gonna rely on scores to make decisions ab schools & children, we should at least measure how they help students progress."

the big difference (an almost $1 billion difference) between two major proposals for school finance reform is how they address funds for low-income students, according to a new report: https://www.tauntongazette.com/news/20190617/report-sizes-up-school-aid-funding-increases … #mapoli #maedu

The bigger question for us, though: Who are we if we don't do what we know needs to be done for our poorest students? This is our chance. Let's go smartly and boldly, just like we've done so many times before. #mapoli #MAEdu #FBRC #EduPROMISE 4/4

Yes, we will need to raise revenue to complete phasing in #EduPROMISE Act, but we don't need new $$ to start. Bay Staters understand the stakes & want us to follow through on our values . #MAEdu #FBRC #mapoli 3/

It's the only bill to double the funding rate for our most impoverished student. Doing this is critical -- it's the minimum needed to actually close achievement gaps at scale. #MAEdu #FBRC #mapoli #EduPROMISE 2/
