    Eva Moskowitz asked whether her Charter schools admit the highest needs kids in NYC, she says she thinks the jury is still out, she doesn't have the information to answer the question in all her travels. Just as tongue tied is Jeremiah Kittredge, top spokesman for a non-profit that is funded by the Waltons, Moskowitz' husbands' group, and hedge-funder backed PACs. Hear him twist up a word-pretzel when asked the same simple question: don't the children whose parents apply to charters them have major home support advantages? To date, no one seems to have asked the teachers in the rooms with the highest-needs kids everyday, but we're still hopeful.

            Public education has always been informed by legislation. This is particularly true of CTE where we have a long and unique history with laws governing our profession dating back to the early 1900s. It is evident that we need these laws because they provide protections for families students and schools. Protections for families include providing free and appropriate public education for students; providing access to due process and being informed. Protections for schools include minimization of frivolous accusations. Knowledge of six significant laws will serve CTE professionals well.

              No Child Left Behind, following the lead of the Office of Management and Budget's definition of racial groups, created a subgroup called Black Students. Linguists defined the English language into different dialects or vernacular Englishes like the English spoken in the South, English spoken in the North, and local English like Boston, MA, and Trenton, NJ. The English taught in the school system is called either Standard English or Academic English. African American Vernacular English, which has been recently defined by Dr. John McWhorter of Harvard University as "hybrid of regional dialects of Great Britain that slaves in America were exposed to because they often worked alongside the indentured servants who spoke those dialects..." Dr. Alejandro Brice, 2012-2014 Chair of the Multicultural Issues Board of American Speech Language Hearing Association shares his thoughts on how children who speak different variations of English like AAVE may fall into the achievement because they have not learned Academic English.

                    No Child Left Behind shed light on the achievement by grouping students primarily by race and ethnicity and then collecting data on each group's performance.The NCLB race subgroups included Black Students, Asian Students, White Students, Native American Students and Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Students. Of special interest is the ethnicity based subgroup of Hispanic Students. Why did the government group students by race and ethnicity? What does ethnicity mean? What defines Hispanic Students? The US Census Bureau helps us understand race and ethnicity in education.

Might we move to ensure that our children, once more have a chance to learn, creatively, critically, and authentically. Public Education Preserved and Transformed begins with you, me, us, America.
