Lawmakers split on how to fix school testing *

Florida lawmakers could overhaul the state’s testing system this year, cutting the number of exams students take and reducing the impact it has on public schools. Or they could tweak it, shifting testing to later in the school year and studying whether national exams — such as the ACT and SAT — could in a few years be used in place of Florida’s current series of two dozen standardized tests. The Senate and House each have proposals, but they are far apart in both scope and details. The two testing bills (SB 926 and HB 773) are among many measures the Legislature will try to hash out before their session ends May 5. The Senate’s measure is more far reaching and has the backing of many school board members, school superintendents, teachers and parent advocacy groups, all of whom think students take too many standardized tests, which eats up too much time during the school year. Florida administered more than 3.6 million exams to students in third grade through high school last year, including the language arts and math tests that make up the Florida Standards Assessments, or FSA, as well as other standardized science and social studies tests. “For the relief of our students … this bill is critical,” said Linda Kobert, an Orange County School Board member who was in Tallahassee last week to lobby for passage of the Senate measure. But whether the House will go along with the other chamber’s suggestions remains uncertain. “Everyone is collectively holding their breath,” she said. Key House leaders say their bill, backed by one of former Gov. Jeb Bush’s influential education foundations, is more prudent, as it avoids major changes until after a study.

DeVos praises Florida voucher program

Florida has channeled billions of taxpayer dollars into vouchers for poor children to attend private schools over the past 15 years, using tax credits to build a laboratory for school choice that the Trump administration holds up as a model for the nation. The voucher program, the largest of its kind in the country, helps pay tuition for nearly 100,000 students from low-income families. But there is scant evidence that these students fare better academically than their peers in public schools. And there is a perennial debate about whether the state should support private schools that are mostly religious, do not require teachers to hold credentials and are not required to meet minimal performance standards. Florida private schools must administer one of several standardized tests to scholarship recipients, but there are no consequences for consistently poor results. “After the students leave us, the public loses any sense of accountability or scrutiny of the outcomes,” said Alberto Carvalho, the superintendent of Miami-Dade County public schools. He wonders what happens to the 25,000 students from the county who receive the scholarships. “It’s very difficult to gauge whether they’re hitting the mark.” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, a longtime advocate for school choice, does not seem to be bothered by that complaint. She is driven instead by the faith that children need and deserve alternatives to traditional public schools. At a recent public forum, DeVos said her record in office should be graded on expansion of choice-friendly policies. She did not embrace a suggestion that she be judged on academic outcomes. “I’m not a numbers person,” she said. In a nutshell, that explains how the Trump administration wants to change the terms of the debate over education policy in the United States.

Teacher accountability reforms and the supply of new teachers *

Across models, we find consistent evidence that both repealing tenure and introducing high-stakes evaluation reforms reduced teacher labor supply. We estimate that number of licensures granted in states dropped by approximately 20 percent in states that adopted accountability reforms. In joint models, both tenure and evaluation reforms appear to contribute to this contraction of the labor supply.
