During the first two segments of Inside Education Sid discussed the Arne Duncan turnaround with regard to teachers; The Great Common Core Textbook swindle; and the possibility of performing an evaluation on Arne Duncan by administering a test to the 4300 people who work at the Department of Education — good tongue in cheek thinking!
A discussion on the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act was introduced and will be continued in future shows as the bills in both houses will enter the conference stage.
Rich Girard was Sid’s guest and the discussion was wrapped in the campaign Rich will run for a seat on the Manchester School Board. Rich described the three areas of his concern which he will address if elected to the board; transparency, communication and parents as partners in the education of their children.
