California Evaluating an “Education Bill of Rights”

Seal of California

An unbelievable statistic from http://www.gettingsmart.com, the recently relaunched blog by Tom Vander Ark;

“More than one million high school students in California – upwards of 50% — attend schools that do not offer sufficient courses for admission to [California] state schools”

There’s more about this at http://gettingsmart.com/blog/2011/11/equal-access-to-college-preparatory-curriculum/, which goes into depth about the movement in California to guarantee that every student has a level playing field. The story has me thinking about the need for tools that teachers and learners can use to get at the resources they need. It’s not just about enrichment, but about basic rights.

I have been an education technology practitioner for over a decade. This blog is a personal experiment with playing the role of observer. We'll see if I can pull it off without getting back into the fray.
