Dept. of Education Stifling Regulations of Teachers

People often forget that the children are not the only people being used as pawns in this new education reform called Common Core.

The teachers are being data mined and have so many regulations put on them they can barely breathe on their own in the classroom without some sort of measured assessment to make sure they are doing what the powers that be want them to do.

Patricia McGuire, president of Trinity Washington University outlines those regulations in an article on Huffington Post. Although HP is not where I get my news, most days, it has had some thoughtful pieces on the Common Core.

The second paragraph of her very interesting piece presents an Orwellian nightmare:

The proposed regulations on Teacher Education released in December by USDE are the latest example of federal over-reach into the nation’s classrooms at all levels of education. Through 75 dense and difficult pages of reading in the Federal Register, a picture emerges of a federal bureaucracy obsessed with controlling and measuring virtually every aspect of a teacher’s work. Despite my own legal training, parsing the Fedspeak of the proposed regs was a turgid slog through too much jargon. Rules that are this long and so obtuse cannot be good. I found myself wondering how many teachers are actually able to read and understand what is about to happen to them. Even more, I found myself asking the unthinkable: who would even want to enter a profession that has so little freedom and so much governmental oversight?
