Common Core trains INFORMED close readers while employers desire WISE creative thinkersvigornotrigor.wordpress.com/2014/07/26/kno… @DrTonyWagner @YongZhaoUO

More troubling than David Coleman’s lack of classroom experience is his lack of work experience which greatly diminishes his wisdom regarding transferable and applicablejob-ready literacy skills and his qualifications for writing career readiness standards.
oh my. 

The Common Core demands that teachers make 12 instructional “shifts” to properly align with the Standards including…
“Students build knowledge about the world (domains/ content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities.”
whoa. whoa.
Close reading students may be able to think deeply and critically within the text, but successful employees must think broadly and creatively to help formulate policies and strategies that will enable their employer to operate appropriately, effectively, legally, and profitably outside the text

we keep talking against it.. but then being it...

is that not wag the dog ness..?
How ironic would it be if the fateful decision to make close reading a centerpiece of the data-driven and evidence-based Common Core ELA Standards was little more than a gratuitous and self-indulgent whim satisfying David Coleman’s passion for close reading?
exactly the point against any coercion.. compulsion...
we are all david Coleman...no?

In their letter, the senators explain that under the Higher Education Act, the Department of Education has the authority to cancel federal student loan debts if colleges lied to the borrower or undermined the quality of students' educations or finances. Many borrowers who attended a for-profit colleges, lured in bymisleading job-placement rates, for example, could qualify for loan cancelations under this authority.

It's not perfect, but superb reporting on the suffering of the Palestinian people:
Kristof: "Gaza has been compared to an open-air prison, and, in the years I’ve been coming here, that has never felt more true...Israel sustains a siege that amounts to economic warfare on an entire population."
