News we can use

It is always nice to see a headline declaring problems with CCSS. Here is one from Valerie Strauss of the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2014/06/29/common-cores-testing-framework-is-crumbling/.


Here is another from the Washington Post discussing how the monies spent on testing could be better spent: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2014/06/24/better-ways-to-use-millions-of-dollars-now-spent-on-testing/.

BSP warning: this is a nice recap of the first LSU YA Conference spearheaded by Steve Bickmore. I was lucky enough to give the opening keynote: http://sites01.lsu.edu/wp/lovepurple/2014/06/13/young-adult-literature-conference/.

Finally, I love this: Welcome to the Common Core Hospital: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peter-greene/welcome-to-common-core-ho_b_5441445.html?&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000023.

Hope everyone is enjoying a long holiday weekend.
