You write obscure educational reports about "throw-away" students, I read them.

In Baltimore, the nonprofit Black Women Build takes vacant homes and shows trainees how to refurbish them. Redlined neighborhoods are a focus. https://t.co/GnYUFwOAE1

... and Recommendation ≠ Requirement when it comes to Maryland #homeschool portfolio reviews - for the families who may still be confused

You get a solid C on your follow up letter @TCPS_MD. You failed to address your writing purpose. By not specifically id'ing your letter as providing corrected info, readers may be left wondering what are the impt points they should focus on. Remember to spell check in the future. https://t.co/xRgNkBL1Kg

@WorcesterSystem: Is there a reason why parents cannot find a complete sentence about homeschool on your website - or find an email for the WCPS homeschool liaison - or even just even download a Notice of Intent form so they can start home instruction?

Here's the article: https://t.co/jmU2RKaHij

Using gifted kids as tutors - just DO NOT do it. It exploits children and denies them the opportunity to actually move forward with their own learning. #gtchat https://t.co/sNRqcfdBCL

There’s not much to complain about with Allegany County Public Schools because it looks like ACPS has taken down most all of their information about homeschooling. Parents can’t download a Notice of Intent form and a contact email isn’t provided. https://t.co/5Zjs6pauaX

According to @AACountySchools homeschool parents become "learning guardians". That's like a superhero power, right? What's not funny about your website is your insistence that parents must teach their kids 25hrs/week https://t.co/YX1QwjVAMH

@SonjaSantelises We know that precision of language can be a tricky skill - but @BaltCitySchools is on the right track with communicating accurate info about Maryland homeschool portfolio reviews. We'll refer you back COMAR 13A.10.01 so you can edit your page accordingly. https://t.co/9kLM89BMb5

Curious to know how a model county handles Maryland homeschool reviews? Take a look at @BaltCoPS. They communicate info about their fair and compliant portfolio review process in a respectful and helpful manner. https://t.co/59MyDAhOhA

COMAR explicitly states 8 subjects that homechoolers must provide "regular, thorough instruction" in. Library Skills, Comp Science, Tech Ed, & Research Skills, while all worthy subjects, cannot be required of families by @CarolineCoPS. @MdPublicSchools is pretty clear about this. https://t.co/ffz291ki5n

@CarolineCoPS Looks like you're next on the twitter wall of shame for not staying in your lane with Maryland homeschool reviews. You can NOT require families to use lesson plan books or to test their children. https://t.co/h1owBXtmw5

I know Talbot Co has never even had 200 homeschool children a year, so maybe your county review process is a little rusty - but your letter to new Maryland #homeschool families is a gross overreach of authority. You need to issue an immediate apology and update your procedures.

This is my interpretation of the difference between Maryland and JHU's positivity rates. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I take a pregnancy test 5 days in a row. On days 1-4 it's negative. On day 5 it's positive. On day 5 my pregnancy positivity rate is... JHU: 100% MD: 20%

In 2017 I filed a FERPA complaint with @usedgov. Today I received a phone call letting me know they are still reviewing the matter and should have a finding soon, even though they have not yet subpoenaed records.

The Maryland State School Board is currently rewriting the Karen Salmon's proposal, word by word.

Massachusetts is already cracking down on learning pods. They must be licensed if they have more than 5 students. Payments are not allowed.

Travel homeschooling - it's been a thing since before covid and I had a chance to talk to Bloomberg about how you can make it a success. https://t.co/FTG5xDqwXj
