Thank You Governor Brown!

Thank You Governor Brown ImageLast week Governor Jerry Brown signed into law legislation I sponsored to sweep away outdated bubble tests and transition our state towards the future.

Please sign this thank you card to Governor Brown to let him know we appreciate him taking, what he called, decisive action!

I'm glad the Governor agreed it was time to move away from No Child Left Behind's inflexibility and teaching-to-the-test mentality. That it's time to transform our schools and leave these bubble tests behind.

Reasoning, critical thinking, creativity, problem solving: these are skills worth fighting for. These are 21st century skills our students will need to ensure they enjoy success in career or college. It's the kind of innovation that shows we are doing what's best for our kids. And that's why that's always been my guiding philosophy as State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Please join me in thanking Governor Brown for signing AB 484 into law and helping us continue moving towards the future!

Thank you Governor Brow for signing AB 484. This is a bold new step that will allow our students to become future thinkers and contributing citizens in our society. This far surpasses our development of rote learners who sought to provide only right or wrong answers. Your support of our students and the future of our society are to be highly commended.

Finally!! Someone in the highest office understands the damaged, bad educational policy and “non assessment” multiple choice tests really are and how much they invalidate students learning and teachers instruction. THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!! I AM PROUD TO BE A CALIFORNIA TEACHER!

Thanks for taking the lead on not investing new untested tests with high stakes outcomes that would be inappropriate!

Thank You!!!! Teachers also need your support in opting out of the Common Core and stopping corporate reformers from destroying public education in our state.

I wish we didn’t have to legislate such obvious things, but since our society is made up of our human species, thank you for having the ability to lead us towards evolving out of the dark ages.
