Update on the WCPSS – WakeEdPartnership Revolving Door

Last month I wrote about the revolving door between “education non-profit” WakeEd Partnership and Wake County Schools.

In that article, I noted that I had requested the job description and salary for Ms. Crain’s position at Wake County Schools. I am here to report that I have received that information.

Creeping Edufascism

Webster defines fascism as, “A way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government.”

CMS Received 200k From Gates For “Strategic Plan”

Apparently, Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools (CMS) received a pile of money from Bill Gates for a “strategic plan” on personalization in the classroom. $200,000 to be exact. That’s a drop in the bucket though. CMS has received $4,403,910 from the Gates foundation to date.

All that ‘one size fits all’ and ‘everyone goes at the same pace’ of Common Core not working out for you Mr. Gates? No, it’s working out just fine, but it needs to be marketed and packaged differently so we need a “strategic plan” to sell it to parents. That’s what this is folks — a new sales pitch of the same old crap.

CMS’s strategic plan is more of the same 21st Century skills propaganda and looks oddly similar to Wake County’s new “strategic plan” right down to that ‘community input’. CMS got Gates to foot the bill for their plan, whereas in Wake county it cost the taxpayer $7k for a website, $7k for a “futurist” to come flap his gums and $45K for company to conduct a survey. Those are just the costs we know about.

Isn’t that special? A nice rah-rah article drawing attention to the costly “strategic plan” for Wake County Schools. Where was this kind of press for the Superintendent’s ‘listening’ forum earlier this year? Continue reading
