Vision 2020 – Monday

June 11, 2012

If you’re going to Vision 2020 tonight for the Parent Power Night sessions, there appear to be some fairly standard offerings: basic information about Career Tech, substance abuse, college planning, cyber-bullying, and parental involvement in schools. At 7:00, however, a session titled “SDE Initiatives” is being offered in Room 1. This will be a 45 minute overview of:

  • The state’s waiver to No Child Left Behind;
  • The new evaluation system for teachers and principals;
  • The Common Core State Standards; and
  • College and Career Readiness.

I’m not entirely sure how one person can do any of those topics justice in that short of a period of time. Expecting that all will be covered adequately is certainly too much to expect. Maybe part of “parent power” is giving them just enough information to be confused.

If anyone makes it to the Cox Center tonight, I’d love to hear your insights.
