This is a new entry, and we encourage you to read about this new wrinkle in American Education. Richard Monroe, Moore TEA Citizen and retired NC teacher and administrator, has written about it, and his research is troubling. This is an attempt, Richard warns, by the government to take over education.
Richard notes, “The State Board of Education doesn’t need legislative approval, having been given carte blanc
on Race To The Top. I have conferred with Donna Garner in Texas, the experton such matters. She says that the only way to stop this train now is to rally the parents in opposition to the competition. We are talking about a state wide effort through the Parent Teacher Organizations and the various civic clubs. It would entail quite an undertaking.”
Richard suggests that “we have one thing in our favor—a year’s window of time. They can’t possibly implement these changes for the 2010-2011 school year. They would begin next fall for the 2011-2012 school year. Naturally, we’ve got to wait and see if we are a winner in the Race To The Top. I don’t know when the decision will be made. If Moore TEA will get involved and encourage other TEA chapters to participate, we might be able to pull this off. It’s worth a try.”
