Can You Imagine...

...from the Indiana Coalition for Public Education on Facebook.
Can you imagine taking your child to a doctor who knowingly and willfully misdiagnoses your child with cancer and recommends immediate, intense chemotherapy?

Further, even though you questioned the doctor on his diagnoses and he could not explain how he came up with the diagnosis; he could not point to any direct source of cancer; he demanded you subject your child to intense chemotherapy anyway? Can you imagine being forced to purposely intervene with toxins to slowly poison your child even though you know the diagnosis is invalid?

So it goes in many Indiana schools today.

From the IDOE to the Statehouse, everyone admits the current A-F grading system is invalid and unreliable. No one at the state can explain exactly how the grades were calculated. Yet those schools doing great work and still receiving D's and F's, must give evidence to the state that they are attempting major interventions to improve student test scores.

How are they doing this? More testing. More data-analysis. They are purposefully increasing toxic interventions that are poisoning the natural desire to learn in our most vulnerable students.

Do you know how demoralizing it is for teachers in these buildings to witness such malpractice?

When will this madness stop?
