K-12 Redesign: Retooling Testing

Our K-12 schools are organized more like a swim meet focused on recording student placement results rather than a swim lesson devoted to student learning. What value are student assessment results if all students move on to the next lesson, concept, or skill regardless of whether mastery was achieved or not? Read More ›

The Radical Reshaping of K-12 Public Education (Part 3): Critical Race Theory & Woke Academics

A form of reverse racism is not only dominating the national conversation but is now a bedrock of teacher training and student academics. Critical Race Theory and woke education are sweeping schools labeling white teachers and students racist and requiring them to denounce their white supremacy — even basic mathematics is under attack for its so-called racism.

The Radical Reshaping of K-12 Public Education (Part 2): Civics & History

The indoctrination of our future electorate, instead of presenting historical facts and fostering higher-order thinking skills in students (analysis, synthesis, etc.), is producing generations who will blindly support ideologies they have yet to evaluate for themselves based on fact. Read More ›

It’s Past Time for a K-12 Redesign

K-12 public education, already in crisis pre-COVID-19, is on a steep downward trajectory — with the severe lack of instruction time, staggering learning loss, alarming dropout numbers, and serious student disengagement. With half of the schools closed nationwide a full year without providing in-person instruction, and only returning with reduced instruction hours despite heaps of additional funding, it’s overdue time for a K-12 redesign.

More Money Can’t Solve the K-12 Education Crisis

Money can’t buy happiness. Nor can pumping excessive money into our K-12 public education system buy student achievement. But people will still try, and when it doesn’t produce the desired outcome, they will try again, setting the threshold of required money higher than before. And, so the insane cycle repeats itself — again and again and again. Read More ›
