NCLB CONFERENCE BEGINS: The Senate plans to vote on heading to conference on No Child Left Behind this morning. After that, the chamber will name its conferees - who very well may be the entire HELP Committee - and they'll gather with House lawmakers this afternoon, beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET at the Capitol. This first meeting will be open to the public and webcast."

Remember, the role of the HELP Committee (Health Education Labor and Pension) in furthering initial passage of Senator Alexander's VERY dangerous S1177.

HELP Committee members:

Conference Meeting on S. 1177, “Every Child Achieves Act of 2015” | The U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor& Pensions 


From Politico:

-" What's in and what's out: The so-called "framework" for a bill is still preliminary and subject to change. But some things that made it into the framework, according to sources familiar with negotiations, are: A mandate that states identify and intervene in the bottom 5 percent of schools, some form of college- and career-ready standards and programs resembling Investing in Innovation and Promise Neighborhoods. Some things that didn't: Title I portability and wildcard outside bills that would update privacy law or renew D.C. school vouchers."

Innovations and Promise Neighborhoods: Read all about these government programs at the U.S. Department of Education's Innovation and Improvement. This includes charter schools, non-public education, private and homeschools, Promise Neighborhoods, full-service community schools (community education), and others.

This blog has been discussing lifelong community education which has been in the works since 1946.

 Promise Neighborhoods call for implementation of the original 1946 Montgomery County Community Schools pilot for the nation with unelected council form of government . ABCs of DumbDown: THE PLAN: CRADLE TO GRAVE

"Program Description 
Promise Neighborhoods, established under the legislative authority of the Fund for the Improvement of Education Program (FIE), provides funding to support eligible entities, including (1) nonprofit organizations, which may include faith-based nonprofit organizations, (2) institutions of higher education, and (3) Indian tribes.
The vision of the program is that all children and youth growing up in Promise Neighborhoods have access to great schools and strong systems of family and community support that will prepare them to attain an excellent education and successfully transition to college and a career. The purpose of Promise Neighborhoods is to significantly improve the educational and developmental outcomes of children and youth in our most distressed communities, and to transform those communities by—

  1. Identifying and increasing the capacity of eligible entities that are focused on achieving results for children and youth throughout an entire neighborhood;
  2. Building a complete continuum of cradle-to-career solutions of both educational programs and family and community supports, with great schools at the center;
  3. Integrating programs and breaking down agency “silos” so that solutions are implemented effectively and efficiently across agencies;
  4. Developing the local infrastructure of systems and resources needed to sustain and scale up proven, effective solutions across the broader region beyond the initial neighborhood; and
  5. Learning about the overall impact of the Promise Neighborhoods program and about the relationship between particular strategies in Promise Neighborhoods and student outcomes, including through a rigorous evaluation of the program.
  In 2010, the Promise Neighborhoods program awarded one-year grants to support the development of a plan to implement a Promise Neighborhood in 21 communities across the country that included the core features described above. At the conclusion of the planning grant period, grantees should have a feasible plan to implement a continuum of solutions that will significantly improve results for children in the community being served.

In 2011, the Department awarded a second round of planning grants and a first round of implementation grants. The five implementation grants and 15 planning grants will reach an additional 16 communities throughout the United States in order to help revitalize disadvantaged neighborhoods. Promise Neighborhoods is now in 18 states and the District of Columbia.

In 2012, a third round of planning grants and a second round of implementation grants were awarded. The 7 implementation grants and 10 planning grants will reach an additional 11 news communities throughout the country. Promise Neighborhoods is now in 20 states and the District of Columbia.

In subsequent years, contingent on the availability of funds, the Department intends to conduct competitions for new implementation and planning grants. While all eligible entities will be able to apply for implementation grants, eligible entities that have effectively carried out the planning activities described in the Notice Inviting Applications, whether independently or with a Promise Neighborhoods planning grant, are likely to be well positioned with the plan, commitments, data, and demonstrated organizational leadership and capacity necessary to develop a quality application for an implementation grant."
