Given the outgoing School Reform Commission’s plans to vote to spend almost $20 million dollars next week on corporate computer-based curriculum and data management by Pearson, the celebratory Eagles Super Bowl parade seemed like a perfect time to go out and ask Philadelphians how they would use the money instead. It’s time we started listening to the voice of the people. It was a great experience that made me so appreciate the wonderful human connections that are possible in our city. If you want to build a movement, education is critical and it can happen many places, including the streets. After watching this video I encourage you to share it with others who value human teachers over data and algorithms. If you live in Philadelphia, please consider signing up to testify at the upcoming SRC meeting on February 15, 2018 4:30pm at 440 N Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19130. Everyone gets up to three minutes, but you have to register the day before by 4:30pm by calling 215-400-4180.
