Erin Jones Career
Jones outlined the following positions on her campaign website:
|“||We cannot continue to ask educators to raise test scores, improve graduation rates, increase college attendance while decreasing access to resources. Doing so is not only impossible, it’s an unfair expectation with unacceptable results||”|
|“||Common Core is often confused for being curriculum, instructional practice and a state assessment. Common Core are merely a set of standards – here’s what students should know and be able to do this year. I had the opportunity to provide input on the very first draft of the middle and high school English Language Arts standards for Common Core years ago while at OSPI. Common Core is not a curriculum. I do not believe textbooks should be the foundation of instruction, although they are a resource. The curriculum is not instruction or teaching. My desire is to promote quality instruction for all students, including students who qualify for highly-capable services to students on IEPs/504 Plans to students who receive support as they learn academic English. Finally, Common Core is not the state test (the Smarter Balanced Assessment). It is my plan, as soon as I take office, to gather educators and test experts (not connected to a test company) to have honest conversations about a testing system that does not take as much time, informs our practice, and returns results in a timely fashion.||”|
|“||The length and time devoted to testing must also be addressed, both at the state and district levels. Educators need quick snapshots of how their students are performing. These snapshots should be simple to deliver and simple to assess. Results should clearly indicate where students need extra support and when they are able to move ahead.||”|
|“||Teacher evaluation is critical to the success of all public schools. However, teacher evaluation should not be punitive or a mechanism to “oust” teachers. Rather, it should serve to help teachers identify their strengths and needed areas of growth. Evaluation should be a way to celebrate success and a tool to ensure teachers receive the support and coaching they need to become their best selves.||”|
|“||The legality and options for charter schools are in the hands of the Court, which will weigh in again soon. As State Superintendent, I will enforce the law, because I am committed to serving all students. The charter school debate has devolved into an endless political and legal battle that is not contributing to our shared goals and common purpose. There is too much at stake to be entrenched and divisive.||”|
