Young spellers excel from 'a' to b-e-e
African American students show prowess at event [...] on Saturday, 15 word gladiators dressed in T-shirts denoting their love for the components of the dictionary took on the form of an academic beehive, competing in the African American National Spelling Bee, the capstone event of a nonprofit group committed to training middle school students for competition and academic achievement. There were dings after "idiosyncrasy," "duress" and "bequest," as nervous parents shifted in their seats and sighed in the Heinen Theatre at Houston Community College's Central Campus. The soundtrack for the event's final ovation was "Survivor" - a winner's anthem by Beyoncé's former group, Destiny's Child. Robert Garner, a Houston real estate entrepreneur and founder of the African American National Spelling Bee Championships Inc., has organized events in Pennsylvania and California over the last decade. Children from Houston Independent School District, Crosby ISD, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, YES Prep Southside charter school and the Abiding Word Lutheran School participated in the bee this year. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, a reading scale that ranges from zero to 500, measures U.S. student reading performance in grades 4, 8 and 12. According to the 2013 results reported by the U.S. Department of Education, average eighth-grade reading scores for Asian students were 280; 276 for white students; 256 for Hispanic students; 251 for American Indian students; and 250 for black students. Jacqueline Terrell, the spelling bee's executive director, said the group's mission is to close achievement gaps by pushing students beyond memorization with word decoding techniques. The Walker brothers attend Crosby Middle School and trained in Saturday workshops with volunteers and African American spelling bee alumna Angel Walker, their older sister.

State is ignoring the public's wishes in its ESSA plan, 10 local superintendents say
Local superintendents say the Ohio Department of Education's should have made more changes to testing and state report cards in its state education plan under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) CLEVELAND, Ohio - A group of local superintendents and other educators questioned Monday the Ohio Department of Education's avoidance of any real changes the public sought in its proposed state education plan under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The group of 10 superintendents, mostly from Lorain County, said in a joint letter Monday that residents made it clear in a series of public meetings and surveys late last year that they wanted less testing of students, changes to state report cards and more stable expectations from year to year. That feedback was supposed to help the department create a new testing and accountability plan to replace the old federal mandates and repercussions of the No Child Left Behind law. But the state's proposed plan makes none of the changes the public wanted, other than to skip them in the name of providing stability. The proposal differs little from what the state does now.  "Ohio had a chance to make some significant reductions to testing," the letter states. "Ohio's educators, parents, students and other constituents waited patiently for Ohio's interpretation and plans for implementing a more flexible and locally controlled accountability system that the ESSA permitted." It addded: "At its core, Ohio's plan does not address nor incorporate the flexibility that was provided through the shift from NCLB to ESSA," the letter reads. Jim Lloyd, superintendent of the Olmsted Falls school district and a leader of the group despite representing a Cuyahoga County district, was more blunt, calling the state plan "No Child Left Behind version 2.0." "They got a mouthful of what the public wanted, which was a reduction in assessments and that's not in there at all," Lloyd said. "I don't get it. I just don't." Superintendents signing the letter were from the Amherst, Avon, Clearview, Columbia Station, Elyria, Keystone, North Olmsted, Oberlin, Olmsted Falls,. They were also joined by officials from the Berea and Wellington school districts. The group plans to have a public forum Feb 22 to share information about the state's plan and gather more feedback. The 7 p.m. forum will be at Avon High School, 37545 Detroit Rd. Check back soon for a look at the changes the local educators want made in the plan.  Or look below for the group's letter.  Click here for more about the state's proposed plan, which is scheduled to be sent to the U.S. Department of Education for approval by April 3. ODE officials said earlier this week that submission of the plan is not the end of the state's review of its accountability plan. They have also noted that it is not simple to eliminate testing, even to the minimum required by federal law. Several tests students take now are mandated by state law and would need law changes to eliminate them. A special task force is also reviewing the state's test score requirements for high school students to graduate. That panel's recommendations,  which could prompt more testing changes, is not due until mid-April. Some state school board members are also uneasy with how few changes the plan makes. They questioned State Superintendent Paolo Demaria Monday about the unresolved testing issues in the plan, asking if  the state could wait until September to submit a more complete plan, as allowed under the law.  The U.S. Department of Education will have more guidance on March 13  for states about how their plans should look. A delay would also allow the state legislature to make any testing changes  Board member Stephanie Dodd said after the meeting that she may ask the board to vote next month for a delay. "I don't know the need for the rush," Dodd said. // DV.load("", { width: 600, height: 800, sidebar: false, container: "#DV-viewer-3461368-Ohio-ESSA-Draft-Plan-Collective-Response-Updated" }); // ]]>

Videos from Ohio's graduation debate: A "march for mediocrity" or a bar set too high?
Ohio's graduation standards were debated in Columbus at the state school board Tuesday. Here's a look at comments from state board member Todd Jones, Olmsted Falls Superintendent Jim Lloyd, Mayfield Superintendent Keith Kelly and Shadyside Superintendent John Haswell Watch video COLUMBUS, Ohio - New high school graduation requirements that could cut graduation rates as much as 30 percent were the center of an often-passionate debate Tuesday between members of the state school board and officials from school districts across Ohio. Here's a look at comments from the state school board meeting from board member Todd Jones, Olmsted Falls Superintendent Jim Lloyd, Mayfield Superintendent Keith Kelly, and Shadyside Superintendent John Haswell. At issue is whether the state should stick with new and stricter graduation requirements, even if they prevent many students from graduating, or whether it should ease them or wipe the new requirements out altogether. The debate also touched on an ongoing fight over how much scores on state tests should matter. The key controversy in the graduation debate is the expectation that students score well on seven new end-of-course exams in order to graduate. Lloyd and Haswell led a rally of a few hundred school officials against those standards outside the statehouse while the board met Tuesday, before a few went to testify before the board. The board is leaning toward relaxing the standards for a few years and increasing them over time to give schools and students time to adjust, rather than having them take full effect with this year's 11th graders, the class of 2018. "Ohio's superintendents are for higher standards and expectations, however you can't simply mandate or will that to happen," Lloyd said at the rally. "There needs to be a proper amount of pressure and support." But state school board members Todd Jones and Tom Gunlock said that schools have known for two years that stricter requirements would take effect and should have responded before now. Jones criticized the rally as a "march for mediocrity" - using a variation of that term a few times. See above for video of him telling the board that "schools that care, not the ones marching for mediocrity at the statehouse" should help students learn what they need to meet higher standards. And here he tells the board that Ohio is becoming the "Mississippi of the north" (partially cut off) with its low educational expectations. Those need to change, he said, so that students can be better prepared for the workforce. Lloyd and other superintendents took issue with Jones's "march for mediocrity" remark and urged the board to consider the impact of the new requirements on students.  To the right are a few of his comments to the state school board, where he repeatedly urged the board to lower the requirements - even beyond what the board is considering. See below for his full prepared speeches for both the rally and board meeting. John Haswell, superintendent of the Shadyside school district on the border with West Virginia, was a co-organizer of the rally. He told the board that the state's use of three different state tests in as many years is unfair to students. He said he doesn't trust the scores because one of his strongest teachers saw her students' results vary dramatically from year to year, though little else changed. He also urged the state to cut testing back to federal minimums and stop using them to determine who graduates. "Don't tie graduation to high-stakes testing," Haswell said. "I'm not for one test marking our children." Here he tells the board that it simply raised expectations too far. Keith Kelly of the Mayfield school district also joined the discussion with the board. Kelly blasted the state's increasing use of standardized tests and how results are used to rank schools like education is a competition. "Why?" he asked. "An overemphasis on testing as a way to measure effectiveness of students and schools discourages teacher growth, not enhances it. Teachers feel bound to test prep, graduation rates, gap closing - and not free to experiment with proven methods and strategies because to do so takes time, trial and error and patience." Here he challenges the board to visit his and other schools to see that they already have rigorous expectations of students. He also believes that graduation requirements are being pushed too fast. "Time to adjust instructional practices in order for kids to reach the standards we set is a major issue - especially when there are socioeconomic challenges at play," Kelly said. "Let's work together to determine a timeline that makes educational sense, not political sense." Here is the text of Jim Lloyd's speeches at the rally and to the state school board: // DV.load("", { width: 600, height: 800, sidebar: false, container: "#DV-viewer-3220988-Olmsted-Falls-Superintendent-Jim-Lloyd-s" }); // ]]>
