I find it interesting that someone in Spokane School District is speaking out on testing. When I worked for Spokane school District, use to test the student quarterly with district test, practice and more practice, than the state test and then the district test. No one spoke out about the testing. I was working in Steven Elementary where an instructional coach was preparing students for state test. After giving instruction teaching to students about writing, they start to work on the writing. I saw one student struggling and asked the instructional coach if I needed to work with the student. She said no go work with other students. He is going to fail we need to work with students who are going to pass. I've seen other incidents where students, especially special education students were being left behind.
I don't know why your paper is writing or concern about what Spokane School District 81 does or doesn't do. You closed your eyes when the school district was discriminating against the hiring of veterans and not supporting the Troops for Teacher program. You closed your eyes when the school district was covering up verbal abuse/degradation, bullying, and neglect of special education student. You closed your eyes when they were ignoring the special education population. Your paper didn't think it was alright that students and teachers alike be treated in a fair and equable way. I've been fighting for over six years now to bring attention of the corrupt, unfair, and destructive system in Spokane school District 81 and in the State of Washington; I can prove it. Your paper use to be a paper willing to take on issues that no other news media would do in Spokane. Please go to endteacherabuse.org and watch my video where I returned my flag to protest what is happening in our education system. If you got tome read my story which I told to your editor in 2007. Are you about the truth or hiding the truth?
