California's Conditions on National Standards

Patrick Riccards, blogging at eduflack, reports that California has signed onto the national-standards effort, but (wisely in my opinion) has placed conditions on its commitment to adhering to the outcome of the process. A decade ago I was a participant in the drafting of California's academic-content standards. These standards have been judged (by the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation and by the American Federation of Teachers) as among the clearest and most rigorous in America , and it would be a shame to water them down in the name of national commonality. Congratulations to Governor Schwarzenegger and California ed officials for their sensible letter setting forth the conditions on the state's involvement.

  1. I agree! I wonder why it is that California does not get press for how beautifully articulated and laid-out is is. For that matter, as you mentioned, California's standards are the most rigorous in the nation. Where does California go from here?

All my former college mates and friends at the university are fond of the best writing service that focuses on the evolution of any theme or idea in Goodexamplepapers.com free examples of essays suggested by educators worldwide. Studying knowledgeable facts as much as keeping in mind gained experience may require huge personal brain resources of both the undergraduates and postgraduates. It comes as a rule that useful information is worthy looking for it.

  7. Megaplex Keto Blend Taking into account the aforementioned points, it is unfortunate to note that there are actually some weight loss programs that in an attempt to show prompt results incorporate the use of diuretics to give the illusion of weight loss. Diuretics, both drugs and diuretic herbs, promote body water loss through the kidneys. Apart from these diet programs leading to body water loss which easily shows up on the bathroom, the dieter risks getting dehydrated.

  10. EverStrong XT CBD Aromatherapy can not cure a major illness or actually cure stress, but you can expect that it can affect your mood, and or help alleviate or temporally eliminate stress or other psychological factors. Other examples of how aromatherapy can reduce tension and stress naturally are with serious illnesses. In cancer patients aromatherapy can enhance the patient quality of life by improving the patient mood, calming fear and it can help ease nausea during chemotherapy treatments. For AIDS patients, aromatherapy can also enhance the patient quality of life psychologically. Essential oils can also help improve one's immune system, therefore potentially assisting an AIDS, or chemotherapy patient in that way.

  12. Viaxxl Male Enhancement women is more of an emotional affair than a physical affair, so that regardless of how 'well hung' one is down there, the woman will only care about whether or not he seems to love and care for her or not. The proponents of male enhancement, on the other hand, offer the alternative view that while sex for women might be more of an emotional affair, it does still have a physical component, which a man can only ignore at the risk of being considered a 'wimp' - hence the need for male

  13. Vital Nutrition Keto Control This is one of the most common weight loss myths out there. It is illogical to think that your health and weight are going to be in balance if your nutrition consists mainly of twinkies, chips, and donuts. Sure you can burn it off by exercising, but most people whose diet consists of mainly junk food are probably not disciplined enough to stick to a workout routine. I do know a few people who, from the outside, look like they are in good shape, because they are not "fat, but who have high cholesterol.

  20. New You Keto Actually, the natural course of weight loss is to experience a quick loss of weight resulting from the loss of water from body tissues which is then subsequently followed by a significant slowdown in fat loss as the body now switches to burning its fat stores to meet it energy needs. After the initial rapid bodyweight reduction phase of a weight loss program, the rate of further healthy fat loss should be somewhere around 1-2 pounds per week, or slightly more depending on the individual's make-up.

It is easy to come across suggestions (regarding hair care) but equally difficult to actually get results. So, it is important to understand what really works for your hair and what does not. It is important to educate yourself about hair care and not act on each and every suggestion that you come across- indiscriminately.

  29.

And while it might be great if all the bodyweight reduction experienced during the initial phase of the diet program was actually from body fat, the fact is that this is not the case.
