In Sid Glassner’s absence, we were joined by Ann Marie Bannfield this morning for a segment of Is Our Children Learning.  Ann Marie kicked off the segment by discussing different pieces of legislation.  She and Rich talked about Dr. Scott Marion’s role in local education, and shared with us that he is misleading people.  They also spoke about the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  Tune in to hear more.
Click here for the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education study that was mentioned.

In their final segment they went more into the Governor’s vetoes and what they mean to us.  Do parents have too much control in the raising of their children?  They discussed the impact of non-English people taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  Listen in to find out more about the topic.
