Testing Time!

> Ohio's students are facing a massive amount of tests in the next few weeks ( There
is just too much time being spent on preparing for and taking tests. As the Governor and General Assembly continue to destroy public education in Ohio, more tests will be used in the future.

> Plunderbund has an interesting post on a recent teacher evaluation proposal from the Ohio General Assembly.  It appears that those in the General Assembly that know nothing about educating children are doing their best to make it even more difficult.

> How are Ohio charter schools doing? Not so good. Recent articles about poor performing charters
convicted felons on charter boards, lack of accountability of charters, and failures of charters have been hitting the news.

> Gov. John Kasich continues his tour of states to talk up his ideas surrounding a balanced budget amendment. His appearances just happen to be in states that will have early Republican presidential primaries.  Surprise.
