14. She's Devised a Complete "How To Create A Hostile Work Environment" in-a- Box.

 

And... in the Idiot Wind that's presently blowing through public education... it's selling like hotcakes.

Lot's of good stuff here:

>>>I initiated a short and amiable email exchange with Ms.Danielson in early 2012. She seems extraordinarily committed to her work. And anxious to defend it. So it couldn’t have been easy for to acknowledge the following: “However, I also can see that it would be inappropriate to require teachers of profoundly handicapped students to create higher-order questions.”

“No kidding”, I muttered to no one in particular. From my POV, I felt like like a dentist extracting an impacted, wisdom tooth from an unanethesized 600-pound gorilla. Even this admission of the staggeringly obvious didn’t come easy. Some analysts ( blogosphere edu-sleuth Susan Ohanian, for instance: http://www.susanohanian.org/outrage_fetch.php?id=1094) have pointed to a previous collaboration between Danielson and the Gates-funded Measures of Effective Teaching… the implication being that there is Gates money behind the Danielson Framework, pushing it indiscriminately , even into places where it plainly doesn’t belong. Of this I know not. I do know that the Gates Foundation has poisoned forever the public debate on public school reform nationally by discretely funding front groups and ‘think tanks’ that then produce “data” and “advocacy” that support Gates Foundation positions on pubic education policy.http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/22/education/22gates.html?_r=2&pagewanted=all&

Is something analogous happening here? It’s difficult to know. But I do think it’s incumbent on Ms. Danielson… given Gates’ scuzzy history… to make plain the full extent of her collaboration with him and be utterly clear on the question of exactly who is paying exactly whom for exactly what.>>>>
