Don’t Want to Be a Dream Hoarder? Here Are 5 Things You Can Do Right Now.

Brookings – Social Mobility Memos

Quote from Article:

In my new book Dream Hoarders, I argue that the American upper middle class is separating from the bottom 80 percent, and that this separation threatens the ideal of equal opportunity.

To be sure, plenty of people have found something in the book to disagree with (for more on that, dig through the comments—if you dare!—on the accompanying op-ed in the New York Times, “Stop Pretending You’re Not Rich” and my appearance on Morning Edition).

But on the other end of the spectrum, others have reach out to ask: “OK, so what should I do, then?”

District Deeds Synopsis:

After our DISTRICT DEEDS ED/OP-ED FACEOFF last Sunday, we received some very interesting emails and phone calls discussing the North of 8/South of 8 perspectives. Some readers believed that no such divide actually exists while others believe that it is far from an illusion.

The main theme in all the communication from our readers was that we should all work together as San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) Stakeholders to make it better for ALL students in ALL schools.

Maybe this article will give us all some ideas on how to accomplish that lofty goal.

Search How Your High School Ranks on California AP Tests


Quote from Article:

When the discrepancy in the test scores was initially discovered, school officials, policymakers and parents told inewsource they rely on the data posted by the Department of Education because it’s the only place where they can compare scores by county, district and school.

Once the file was updated, pass rates for all but two districts in San Diego County dropped by 1 to 4 percent. The Julian Union High and Lakeside Union school districts decreased by more than 8 percent.

In total, 64,534 AP tests were taken in San Diego County last year. Of those, 40,391 earned a passing score of 3 or higher, or a pass rate of 63 percent. The pass rate for California is 56 percent.

inewsource analyzed the new results and four years prior to create a searchable database for parents, students and teachers to review a school’s performance.

District Deeds Synopsis:

inewsource.org comes through again with a fantastic tool for all SDUSD Stakeholders to review the success of AP in each of our High Schools. As we reviewed the reports of various SDUSD High Schools it was shocking how they varied so dramatically in both the scores and the number of tests given.

Oklahoma Teacher Turns to Panhandling for Classroom Supplies

– Fox23 News – Tulsa, Oklahoma

Quote from Article:

A Tulsa teacher is making a bold statement about the state of education as she pleads for money at a local intersection in order to pay for classroom supplies.

Teresa Danks is a third grade teacher in the Tulsa Public Schools systems.

District Deeds Synopsis:

District Deeds has witnessed numerous SDUSD Teachers and Administrators spend their own money to provide supplies and other teaching aids to their classrooms and schools.

With the current financial mismanagement of the SDUSD leadership and the cuts to all areas, we may soon begin to see our own Teachers panhandling for classroom supplies.

Let’s hope we have a change of senior leadership (i.e. Superintendent) in the SDUSD before something that drastic happens!

On the note of selfless giving here is the Quote of the Week:

“Real education should educate us out of self into something far finer; into a selflessness which links us with all humanity.”

-Nancy Astor

Have a Great Week!!!
