We. Are. Screwed."The College Board was founded with a deep commitment to equity and must play a critical role in helping all students achieve high academic standards to thrive intellectually and to compete in a global economy."David Coleman, new CEO for the College Board
|I am resisting a very obvious, funny caption here--|
David Coleman, the "architect" of the Common Core standards, has made a career at pretending that public education is about making careers. He's gotten very rich doing this.
He's never taught in a public school classroom.
He's never "competed in a global economy."
He's never raked clams.
The College Board may well be committed to equity now, but that was not its founding goal. You can read its founding goal on the College Board website:
The SAT replaced it in 1926.
I do not know much about Mr. Coleman, and he knows even less about me. But I know a bit about public ed, and I when someone's fibbing.
Arne Duncan loves him. So does Jeb Bush.
He also said this:
[A]s you grow up in this world you realize people really don’t give a shit about what you feel or what you think.”Maybe that's true in his world. Maybe that's why the College Board needs to pay over
But I do, and so do a lot of others.
Your in my space now, Mr. Coleman, and you're screwing with my kids, kids who currently pay $87 a pop to support your salary.
I suspect you'll be hearing more from me.
There is a very short list of people with whom I'd never break bread, even if I were offered a million dollars for my trouble..
A former President is one of them. Mr. Coleman is on the list.
