What is truth in education?

This article by J. Marcus Patton, as published November 30, 2016 on the “Get Schooled” blog of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is filled with truth. I urge every reader of my blog to read Mr. Patton’s article at this link:
Opinion: We cheat more than APS students when we rely on tests to define achievement

Here are my two responses to Mr. Patton’s article. The first was allowed to be seen by the reading audience of the AJC, and the second response which I wrote was only allowed to be seen by myself:

“Outstanding article, J. Marcus Patton. Every sentence is filled with truth. That speaks of a (your) lifetime spent in not compromising with ascertaining truth, in spite of the tendency of most to look away from that truth. You have followed your own North Star of what is true and that quality of your thinking will benefit society.”

For those concerned about serious improvement in educational delivery in Georgia, I must point out these words of J. Marcus Patton, in his article, above: “The story explains that a program has been set up to offer tutoring, counseling, and social services to the ‘victims’ of the scandal – but it is only open to those students.”

I want readers to understand, once again, that “tutoring, counseling, and social services” are all part of Georgia’s Democratic Caucus in Georgia’s legislature to improve educational delivery in schools while improving communities, simultaneously. The improvement in one area (the community) invariably spills over to improvement in the other (more success in the classroom), and vice versa.

Vote Democratic every chance you get, citizens who are concerned with authentic and long-lasting educational improvement in Georgia.”
