Two she termed working class. Most fathers had semi-skilled or unskilled jobs e. Schoolwork there involved following the steps of a procedure:
You had a bipartisan agreement in your legislature for more one-time student funding to help deal with some of the financial challenges that districts like this one have.
And Governor Brandstad vetoed it. Yet at the same time you have these laws which require if you have a deficit you may not be able to be a school district.
And this school district and these schools throughout Iowa are doing a better-than-average job. But when you have a district that is doing a good job, it seems kinda counterproductive to impose financial burdens on it. The full talk is longer than an hour if even more context is needed: Of course, there is also bad news.
Peter Greene of Curmudgucation very astutely observed that the context does not exactly absolve Secretary Clinton: What happens to staff? What happens to students? What happens to the community?
This is essentially correct in my opinion, and, as mentioned above, it indicates just how normalized the current language of accountability and threats to schools is without our political landscape.
Schools are measured as successes and failures using distant measurements that are absent any locally understood input, and then they are threatened until those measures rise — or the school is closed and frequently turned over to a private operator with absolutely no accountability to local democratic institutions.
Secretary Clinton may have been, to her credit, talking about the insanity of a state government financially starving local schools, but she signaled that the essential framework of No Child Left Behind is still alive and well in our political discourse.
This reflects a lasting concern among scholars and advocates for public education that in the 32 years since A Nation At Risk was published and in the almost 15 years since No Child Left Behind was enacted, the call for accountability in our education system has been entirely unidirectional — with schools and teachers called upon to lift students and communities from poverty and inequality while the rest of society is called upon to do exactly nothing.
All I am saying in this essay is that I am tired of acting like the schools, all alone, can do what is needed to help more people achieve higher levels of academic performance in our society. As Jean Anyonp. The obligation that we educators have accepted to be accountable to our communities must become reciprocal.
Our communities must also be accountable to those of us who work in the schools, and they can do this by creating social conditions for our nation that allow us to do our jobs well.
Accountability is a two way process, it requires a principal and an agent. For too long schools have thought of themselves only as agents who must meet the demands of the principal, often the local community, state, or federal government.
It is time for principals and other school leaders to become principals. That is, school people need to see communities as agents as well as principals and hold communities to standards that insure all our children are accorded the opportunities necessary for growing well.
It does take a whole village to raise a child, and we actually know a little bit about how to do that. What we seem not to know how to do in modern America is to raise the village, to promote communal values that insure that all our children will prosper.

We need to face the fact that our whole society needs to be held as accountable for providing healthy children ready to learn, as our schools are for delivering quality instruction. One-way accountability, where we are always blaming the schools for the faults that we find, is neither just, nor likely to solve the problems we want to address.
The severity of this problem in many of our communities cannot be overstated. Is that the bottom line, however? Her reporting took her to Las Vegas to a family whose children attend Whitney. I recommend reading this transcript with a box of tissues nearby: At the Whitney, the school provides meals not just for the school day but for the weekend as well.
Kim Butterfield is a teaching assistant at Whitney. She says her students are clearly hungry and desperate.With Anyon's piece, consider the genre of her text; this essay is considered ethnographic. With any genre, we must consider the ways in which that genre works and the genre's strengths and weaknesses.
If Anyon was to come and observe my school when I attended elementary school, I believe that she would have labeled it as a working class school.
I say that because not only is a majority of the students came from working class families, but also we were taught on the same lines as Anyon de.

As I climb deeper into my data, I find myself revisiting the four books pictured: Radical Possibilities by Jean Anyon, City Teachers by Kate Rousmaniere, How Teachers Taught by Larry Cuban, and The One Best System by David Tyack.
