Families Opting Out Of STAAR Find Alternative School

Posted on by

first_imgLaura IsenseeTeacher Sam Brower leads a class at an alternative learning environment for students who are not taking the state standardized exams this week. Brower said that his lesson tries to teach about discrimination through a Dr. Seuss book.This week thousands of Texas students are taking state standardized exams, called the STAAR. But in Houston about 80 kids have signed up to do something totally different.Tuesday morning, a bunch of them were playing with a swing outside a community center in North Houston. Third grader Lucia Zuniga explained the game.“We’re playing with the rope and whoever catches it gets to swing on it,” she said.This is not what she normally does at school. “This school is a school for no testing,” Lucia said.It’s called the Opt Out Academy. It’s a temporary, alternative school this week that the advocacy group Community Voices for Public Education organized for students who boycott state exams. The group estimates that as many as 500 families in Greater Houston have opted their child out of at least one standardized exam this year.Lucia’s mom Julia Kramp signed her up because she believes high stakes tests hurt her daughter’s education.“It takes away from the time that she could be learning,” Kramp said. “So they spend a lot of time every year doing practice exams, learning how to take the STAAR, learning how to bubble in correctly.”At this alternative school, Lucia loves having lots of recess. And her mom likes the creative lessons. In the first one Lucia learns about discrimination through a Dr. Seuss book.Kramp and other parents hope their boycott changes the way tests are used in school.“For us it’s about kind of changing a system that’s in place,” said Sam Brower, a parent and also a teacher at the alternative academy. “Because it’s not just the week of STAAR tests, but it’s all the test prep and all the practice exams and the mock exams that take place leading up to the STAAR. And then this week there’s the added stress, there’s the added pressure.”Results factor into teacher evaluations and, in certain grades, they may determine if a child moves on to the next level.But this year the Houston Independent School District approved a new policy saying students won’t be punished for not taking the STAAR.

BJP trying to disturb peace and stability of Bengal TMC

Posted on by

first_imgKolkata: The ruling Trinamool Congress today accused the state BJP of trying to disturb the peace and stability of West Bengal by making provocative statements against its cadre. TMC secretary general Partha Chatterjee said the BJP for the last few years have been trying to disturb peace and stability in the state. “They have been doing such things just to gain political foothold in Bengal. But the people of Bengal will never accept a party which propagates communal division,” he said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights Chatterjee said, “First they(BJP) tried their hand in creating communal tensions and now they are making provocative statements. But they won’t succeed in their intensions.” Chatterjee’s comment comes in the backdrop of West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh recent utterance that his party would not take it lying down if its workers were attacked by the TMC. Threatening “direct encounters,”, he had said “We are counting the bullets which killed our workers.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed “We have seen many goondas. There is a limit to tolerance (to such attacks). We have not given any bond that we will offer them (TMC) rasogolla (sweet) even if they attack us. There will be retaliation”, Ghosh had said at a public meeting in north Bengal on June 19. Hitting back, Chatterjee said the BJP is “miles away” from the seat of power in West Bengal and is threatening to launch encounters. “From such statements the people of Bengal can understand the kind of intolerant outfit BJP is,” he added. Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee had yesterday called BJP a “militant organisation,” and alleged that it is engaged in dividing the people along religious lines while daring it to attack her party. “We are not a militant organisation like the BJP. They are arrogant and intolerant. They are religiously biased. They don’t like Muslims, Christians, Sikhs – they are even differentiating between the upper caste and the lower caste Hindus,” Banerjee, a known critic of the saffron party, had said at the extended core committee meeting of the TMC. Lashing out at the BJP, she had said, “They (BJP) are threatening to carry out encounters. Just because they are in power in Delhi, they are talking about hurling bombs. I dare them to come and touch us. We will show them their place.”last_img read more
