The revolution has indeed come, friends (and it's not the good kind). The Daniels plan to continue the attack on public education gets even more serious as teacher licensure is "redefined." Citing no research or credible evidence (or even support from superintendents) for such moves, the straw man argument that Schools of Education are the problem continues. "Mumbo Jumbo" (see below) I can only assume means teaching kids with special needs, understanding the science of learning & effective teaching, or bringing to light what we know about teaching kids who traditionally don't do well [sarcasm intentional]. Anyone who's thought beyond surface politics knows that content knowledge alone doesn't make a good teacher
This is not only offensive but disingenous and so ideological that its hard to even understand how it could be offered in public. Shameful.
Brian Howey: Daniels’ Education ‘Revolution’ Next Week /Posted On July 24, 2009

INDIANAPOLIS - Next week, the education “revolution” begins in Indiana.Read the whole article at Howey Politics
Does Daniels have in mind a mix of what charter and traditional public schools should be? The governor explained, “No. I don’t pretend to know. What I know is that alternative approaches are extremely popular with parents and families. I do know that the general record of these schools is superior to the old model.” FALSE BTW: see both the Spellings Report and the newest study from Stanford posted earlier.
