Democrats Educational Reform

June 21, 2013

Chicago attorney, Howard Ankin, participated in the Democrats education reform event. According to their website, Democrats Education Reform stands for the following:

 

  • “We support policies which stimulate the creation of new, accountable public schools.
  • We support mechanisms that allow parents to select excellent schools for their children, and where education dollars follow each child to their school.
  • We support governance structures which hold leaders responsible, while giving them the tools to effectuate change. We believe in empowering mayors to lead urban school districts, so that they can be held accountable by the electorate.
  • We support policies that allow school principals and their school communities to select their teams of educators, holding them accountable for student performance but allowing them flexibility to exercise sound, professional judgment.
  • We support clearly-articulated national standards and expectations for core subject areas, while allowing states and local districts to determine how best to make sure that all students are reaching those standards.”
