Snowed in?

Looking for something to do? The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction is looking for feedback about the state's education reform efforts.

According to the Governor's office, OSPI is trying to identify specific steps to help us meet the four state goals laid out last June in our state's application for the Obama Administration's Race to the Top grant program:
  • Students entering kindergarten will be prepared for success in school and life;
  • Students will compete in math and science nationally and internationally;
  • Students will attain high academic standards regardless of race, ethnicity, income or gender; and
  • Students will graduate able to succeed in college, other higher training and careers.
Washington ultimately was not selected as a recipient, but reform efforts continue.

So take a few moments, see how quickly you can decipher some of the wonky survey language, and give your two cents on education reform.
