New Campaign Works to Aid Florida Public Education

A new campaign is working to invigorate public schools across Florida and the U.S. The American Federation of Teachers – Real Solutions for Kids and Communities campaign is looking to help schools bolster student learning.

One element of the plan is to boost reading, since reading skills have plummeted across the nation.

Research from the Albert Shanker Institute finds Florida has taken critical steps to ensure student reading is blossoming.

AFT President Randi Weingarten said evidence-based reading practices need to become the norm for school districts across the country, noting it has a multitude of benefits.

“That science of reading points to a systematic approach that includes phonics instruction,” said Weingarten, “along with giving students plenty of opportunities to read interesting and high-quality books to develop their background knowledge and to build their vocabulary.”

However, Florida has become a state where book bans have become a new normal.

Although Gov. Ron DeSantis has claimed books aren’t being banned in his state, a Pen America report finds there have been 357 book bans in Florida.

Additionally, elected officials are working to implement parental bills of rights in schools. Although some see these are ways to ensure parents and schools are more collaborative, others feel it creates curriculum restrictions.

U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said he thinks education should be determined by educators.

“We can teach the tragedies and the triumphs of American history, and still instill pride in our country,” said Cardona. “As a parent, as a teacher and as a former principal, I know strong and productive relationships between teachers and parents are vital to student success.”

This all comes as Americans’ faith in education has dropped after reaching recent highs in 2020.

A Gallup poll finds 28% of people have confidence in public education, down from 32% in 2021, and down further still from 41% in 2020.

Nueva campaña en favor de la educación pública en Florida

School

Una nueva campana pretende reavivar las escuelas publicas de Florida y Estados Unidos.

La campana Real Solutions for Kids and Communities de la Federacion Americana de Profesores pretende ayudar a las escuelas a reforzar el aprendizaje de los alumnos.

Uno de los elementos del plan es impulsar la lectura, ya que las habilidades lectoras van en declive en todo el pais.

Segun un estudio del Instituto Albert Shanker, Florida ha dado pasos decisivos para garantizar el florecimiento de la lectura entre sus alumnos.

La presidenta de la AFT, Randi Weingarten, afirma que las practicas de lectura basadas en pruebas deben convertirse en la norma para los distritos escolares de todo el pais, senalando que tienen multitud de beneficios.

“La ciencia de la lectura apunta a un enfoque sistematico que incluya la ensenanza de la fonetica,” explica Weingarten, “ademas de dar a los alumnos muchas oportunidades de leer libros interesantes y de calidad para desarrollar sus conocimientos previos y ampliar su vocabulario.”

Sin embargo, Florida se ha convertido en un estado donde las prohibiciones de libros se han convertido en una nueva normalidad.

Aunque el gobernador Ron DeSantis ha afirmado que no se prohiben libros en su estado, un informe de Pen America revela que se han producido 357 prohibiciones de libros en Florida.

Ademas, los funcionarios electos estan trabajando para implementar las declaraciones de derechos de los padres en las escuelas. Aunque algunos consideran que son formas de garantizar una mayor colaboracion entre padres y escuelas, otros creen que crean restricciones en los planes de estudios.

El Secretario de Educacion de Estados Unidos, Miguel Cardona, cree que la educacion debe ser determinada por los educadores.

“Podemos ensenar las tragedias y los triunfos de la historia de Estados Unidos y seguir inculcando el orgullo por nuestro pais,” asegura Cardona. “Como padre, como profesor y como antiguo director, se que las relaciones solidas y productivas entre profesores y padres son vitales para el exito de los alumnos.”

Todo esto se produce en un momento en que la confianza de los estadounidenses en la educacion ha descendido tras alcanzar maximos recientes en 2020. Segun una encuesta de Gallup, el 28% de los encuestados confia en la educacion publica, frente al 32% de 2021 y el 41% de 2020.
