Education reform has been well underway for decades. It has picked up the pace considerably in the last two decades. The Common Core State Standards, related assessments, state longitudinal data systems, education technology, and other measures have served like accelerants in the ed reform arson. The result is Ed Reform 2.0.
Alison McDowell presented Future Ready Schools: How Silicon Valley and the Defense Department Plan to Remake Public Education in Seattle in March 2017. Her presentation addresses Ed Reform 2.0 and provides an informative introduction to it.
