Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All

Senate Bill 1 (2009) has a new name…Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All. As in everything education, I have acronym’d it…UBL. At University of Kentucky, we’re working on creating a resource page for everything around UBL/SB1. We have the basic structure and basic links up now: http://sites.education.uky.edu/sb1/

We’ll be adding lots more to it in the coming weeks. Enjoy!

Education Reform in Kentucky


Here is a news clip on some of the Education Reform happenings going on in Kentucky. It is currently being aired on Cable Channel 2. Yes that’s me facilitating a workshop 8 months pregnant earlier this year!

Senate Bill 1 Basics

Today my colleague, Les Burns, and myself presented a session on Senate Bill 1 (approved in March 2009) to the College of Education at our annual Faculty Retreat (really a glorified long meeting). We presented the attached document and then facilitated discussion amongst small groups. It’s the start to a long rode of teacher education reform. I hope the faculty can start to see this as an opportunity to engage more in influencing policy decisions and getting a voice at the state level.
