7 Typical conversation in education We must raise standards for students!!!
8 Today s conversation Raising achievement will require raising the standards of the village
9 definitions Just the critical terms
10 Let s start on the same page Here are some terms that we need to define: Standards Expectations Evaluation Accountability Achievement gap stakeholders

12 Formalize definitions Get feedback from large group to rework definitions and create definitions that reflect the understanding of the whole group
13 National perspective History of public school education
14 Origins of the public school system Original schools in nation were religious; Until mid-1800 s, schools were for wealthy; From 1900 to 1995, graduation rates increase from 6% to 75% (for those children who attended public schools); Girls and ethnic minorities not originally educated in the public schools; Ethnic minorities attended homogeneous schools in their communities until desegregation;
15 Trends in public education A Nation at Risk, 1983 report shows American students are being outperformed by international counterparts; Most schools legally desegregated by 1980 s; however, still inequities in system for girls and minority students;
16 National drop-out crisis! Nearly one in five U.S. men between the ages of 16 and 24 (18.9 percent) were dropouts in Nearly three of 10 Latinos, including recent immigrants, were dropouts (27.5 percent). More than one in five blacks dropped out of school (21 percent). The dropout rate for whites was 12.2 percent. The dropout situation at the state level was similarly widespread: More than one in 10 people ages 16 to 24 years old had dropped out of high school in each of the 12 states surveyed.
17 President Bush s response No Child Left Behind A standards-based reform movement based on the belief that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in education. The Act requires states to develop assessments in basic skills to be given to all students in certain grades, if those states are to receive federal funding for schools. The Act does not assert a national achievement standard; standards are set by each individual state.
18 President Obama s response Promoting Innovation, Reform, and Excellence in America s Public Schools America will not succeed in the 21st century unless we do a far better job of educating our sons and daughters And the race starts today. I am issuing a challenge to our nation s governors and school boards, principals and teachers, businesses and nonprofits, parents and students: if you set and enforce rigorous and challenging standards and assessments; if you put outstanding teachers at the front of the classroom; if you turn around failing schools your state can win a Race to the Top grant that will not only help students outcompete workers around the world, but let them fulfill their God-given potential. - President Barack Obama July 24, 2009
19 Race to the Top The Race to the Top emphasizes the following reform areas: Designing and implementing rigorous standards and highquality assessments, by encouraging states to work jointly toward a system of common academic standards that builds toward college and career readiness, and that includes improved assessments designed to measure critical knowledge and higher-order thinking skills. Attracting and keeping great teachers and leaders in America s classrooms, by expanding effective support to teachers and principals; reforming and improving teacher preparation; revising teacher evaluation, compensation, and retention policies to encourage and reward effectiveness; and working to ensure that our most talented teachers are placed in the schools and subjects where they are needed the most.
20 Race to the Top (cont.) Supporting data systems that inform decisions and improve instruction, by fully implementing a statewide longitudinal data system, assessing and using data to drive instruction, and making data more accessible to key stakeholders. Using innovation and effective approaches to turn-around struggling schools, by asking states to prioritize and transform persistently low-performing schools. Demonstrating and sustaining education reform, by promoting collaborations between business leaders, educators, and other stakeholders to raise student achievement and close achievement gaps, and by expanding support for high-performing public charter schools, reinvigorating math and science education, and promoting other conditions favorable to innovation and reform.
21 Common Core Standards Governors and state commissioners of education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state standards in English-language arts and mathematics for grades K-12. This is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
22 Washington State How have we progressed?
23 Washington State History of Indian boarding schools within the last 50 years; Early move to statewide standards and assessment systems (before the federal mandate); Local control; Little support for charter schools; Gates small schools movement; 3-year voluntary participation school improvement model;
24 Who are our kids? What is the demographic of the student population?
25 Changes in demographics Abundant military bases, agriculture and railroads have brought great diversity to our region over the last years; We are currently one of the fastest browning states in the nation; Our non-brown ELL population is also on the rise; The colors and cultures of our students are vastly different today than they were 10 years ago!
26 Washington State 10 Year Student Picture Group Net Change 999,616 1,040, ,134 White 759,708 (76%) 672,350 (64.8%) -87,358 (-11.2%) Am Indian/Alaska 27,989 (2.8%) 27,363 (2.6%) -626 (-0.2%) Latino 90,965 (9.1%) 158,612 (15.3%) +67,647 (+6.2%) African American 50,980 (5.1%) 56,790 (5.5%) +5,810 (+0.4%) Asian Am/Pacific Is 70,973 (7.1%) 89,231 (8.6%) +18,258 (1.5%) Bilingual/ELL 5.1% 8% All #
27 Who are the students in our state?
30 If nothing changes we will close the Achievement Gap/Meet Standards in (Est.): 4 th Grade African American Reading 2022 (12yrs) Math 2042 (32yrs) 10 th Grade African American Reading 2017 (7yrs) Math 2064 (54yrs) Latino 2022 (12yrs) 2050 (40yrs) Latino 2017 (7yrs) 2056 (46yrs) Native American 2029 (19yrs) 2049 (39yrs) Native American 2018 (8yrs) 2058 (48yrs)
31 We face a growing crisis... Between 40 and 50% of African-American, Latino, Native American and Pacific Island students in Washington state are not graduating on time, if at all. These students are overrepresented in special education and underrepresented in gifted programs. Performance on the WASL has improved for all students, but there are still gaps.
32 Who are our teachers? Let s take a look at the make-up of educators.
33 Teacher Information, Classroom Teachers 59,562 Average Years of Teacher Experience 12.5 Teachers with at least a Master's Degree 64.1% Total number of teachers who teach core academic classes 49,900 % of teachers teaching with an emergency certificate 0.2% % of teacher teaching with a conditional certificate 0.4% Total number of core academic classes 133,050 NCLB Highly Qualified Teacher Information % of classes taught by teachers meeting NCLB highly qualified (HQ) definition 97.9% % of classes taught by teachers who do not meet NCLB HQ definition 2.1% % of classes in high poverty schools taught by teachers who meet NCLB HQ definition 96.7% % of classes in high poverty schools taught by teachers who do not meet NCLB HQ definition 3.3% % of classes in low poverty schools taught by teachers who meet NCLB HQ definition 98.3% % of classes in low poverty schools taught by teachers who do not meet NCLB HQ definition 1.7%
34 Now to raising achievement By raising the standards
35 We know where our students are We are not satisfied! Now what?
36 Common response Let s set the bar higher for students Group discussion: Where do we see this philosophy in action in our buildings/in policy making?
37 Raising the bar for students in WA The creation of the WASL with the expectation that large percentages of students would fail in the beginning but would improve over time; Establishing new standards and expectations for math and science, along with the addition of standards and assessments in performing arts and physical education; Core 24 State Board concept that would require all students to earn 24 credits in specific areas in order to graduate;
38 State expectations for students All students graduate college and career ready!
39 Let s take a different look If we want to raise achievement, should we just look at students? Let s talk about it Who are the other stakeholders? Can we hold them accountable for student achievement? Should we?
40 Some critical stakeholders Students Teachers Families Decision-makers (building/district/state administrators, city officials, legislators) Community members/organizations
41 Teachers As we raise standards for students, let s think about the impact on teachers
42 Common recommendation from 5 Achievement Gap Studies: Schools need higher quality/more effective teachers (cultural competence is critical!)
43 Highly Qualified No Child Left Behind mandates that all teachers in core academic areas must be highly qualified in the core academic subjects they teach by the end of the school year. It also requires that teachers in Title I programs or schools be highly qualified immediately. A more flexible timeline is allowed for teachers in eligible small, rural schools, who often teach multiple subjects.
44 Highly-qualified vs. highly effective Is there a difference? Let s talk about it
45 In the past, Washington State has Encouraged teachers to earn a Master s degree; Mandated the attainment of Pro-cert; Encouraged teachers to pursue National Board Certification (with additional pay for those teachers who serve in low SES communities);
46 Pro-Cert now Pro-Teach For the ProTeach Portfolio, candidates will be required to submit three entries that include evidence of student work and teacher classroom instruction that must meet the Washington Professional Certificate standards and criteria. These entries address Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, Professional Growth and Contributions, and Building a Learning Community. Candidates will be required to meet a single passing score and will be able to retake any entries on which they do not meet the standard. oteachlaunchfinal.pdf
47 National Board Certification National board Certified teachers will are Teachers who are committed to students and their learning. Teachers who know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students. Teachers who are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning. Teachers who think systematically about their practice and learn from experience. Teachers who are members of learning communities. _board_c
48 Has this made a difference? Master s degrees have not demonstrated greater effectiveness; National Board Certified teachers tend to be concentrated in more affluent communities or low SES, predominantly Caucasian communities; however, new program developing to target teachers of color in high-needs communities; More seat time/class time has not necessarily meant higher achievement for students, particularly students of color;
49 Discovery in ALL 5 achievement gap reports Many teachers of students of color may be highly qualified in their subject area, but are less confident in their ability to address the diverse learning needs of the students in their classrooms. There has been shown to be a lack of relevant curriculum, assessment tools and teachers who are able to connect with students from different cultures (elements which tend not to be addressed in any of the teacher education programs or continuing education programs).
50 Raising the standards for teachers New standards for incoming teachers through the Professional Educators Standards Board: Cultural Competence training for ALL ELL training for ALL What about teachers who are already in the system?
51 Promoting effective ELL programs Encourage training in ELL strategies for ALL educators in Washington State: Training in WPLT II language assessment ELL Trainer-of-Trainers Cadre (ESD 105) Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) See these links to reports on what s working in WA: July09FINAL.pdf ELL_policy_%20brief_10-19.pdf
52 Families Can we establish standards for families?
53 Do we have control in this area? We may not be able to MAKE families do anything for children, but what could we do to make an impact in this area? ALL 5 achievement gap reports stated that one of the most important factors in raising achievement is building partnerships with families. Could we establish standards?
54 Current resources Office of the Education Ombudsman free trainings for parents/families on how to engage the public school system; Center for the Improvement of Student Learning free trainings for educators about how to effectively engage/partner with families See Let s Talk About It document on website
55 Decision-makers Who are they? How do we raise the standard?
56 Who are the decision-makers? Group discussion: Brainstorm a list of ALL the decision-makers in education; think about everyone from the school building to the state;
57 How do we raise the standard? Group discussion: If we expect educators to meet certain standards and to be evaluated, how do we do the same for decision-makers at every level? How do we measure success?
58 Supporting educators Administrators, superintendents, school board members should all receive training in cultural competence and civil rights law; How can we expect decision-makers to hold people accountable for aspects of education for which they have not been trained or had experience?
59 Community members/organizations Do we have any control here?
60 Who is the community? Group discussion: Make a list of the education stakeholders in a school community.
61 How do we raise the standard? Group discussion: What should the community be expected to do? How can we measure that success?
62 Back to the kids Because that s really why we re here.
63 Early on Students need to be given opportunities beginning at birth to develop the skills necessary to be prepared for school; Early childhood programs are not all equal highquality birth to five programs MUST be made available for students, particularly in high-poverty, high-minority, high-ell communities; Standards must be raised for early childhood programs babysitting is no longer adequate!
64 Elementary All students must have literacy and numeracy skills at grade-level by the 4 th grade, whatever the cost! Students must be exposed to future-thinking and planning at this age; 4-year college may not be a desire or a bestplacement for EVERY student but should be an option for EVERY student!
65 Moving on We must raise the standards for what is expected as students transition from one level to the next (pre-school to elementary; elementary to middle; middle to high school and high school to postsecondary); Students must have access to rigorous courses in middle/junior high to prepare them for the kind of high school schedule that will set them up to be college and career-ready.
66 High school: Mismatches in the system Minimum high school graduation requirements ARE NOT THE SAME for minimum Four Year College Entry Requirements For example: HS graduation College entry 3 credits English 4 credits English 2 credits Math 3 credits Math 2.5 credits S.S. 3 credits S.S. 0 credits World Language 2 credits World Lang.
67 Raise the bar, raise the support We must raise the standards and expectations for ALL students, but, as we do, we must also raise the support. Programs with this goal: AVID MESA GEAR-UP College Success
68 Debrief Session in a nutshell
69 It takes a village We MUST raise standards for ALL students to prepare each one for success in a global economy; We must also raise standards for all those who are responsible for the well-being of students: Families Educators Decision-makers Community partners This work CANNOT be done alone!
