RE: [xmca] Obama's Learn Act
Hi Peg and others:
Here is the specific language under section 9, e,1,c of the LEARN Act:
SEC. 9. SUBGRANTS TO ELIGIBLE ENTITIES IN SUPPORT OF BIRTH THROUGH KINDERGARTEN ENTRY LITERACY.
(e) LOCAL USES OF FUNDS.—
(1) IN GENERAL.—An eligible entity that receives a subgrant under this section shall use the subgrant funds consistent with the plan proposed in subsection (c) to carry out the following activities:
(C) SCREENING ASSESSMENTS AND MEASURES.—Acquiring, providing training for, and implementing screening assessments or other appropriate measures to determine whether children from birth through kindergarten entry are developing appropriate early language and literacy skills.
The question is, "WHO will determine what is appropriate and HOW will they assess it?" This goes to the heart of Vygotsky's work.
