TALLAHASSEE — The survey says… not much, if it’s not filled out.

That’s what the United Faculty of Florida, the state’s largest faculty union, is asking students, faculty and staff at state colleges and universities to do with online quizzes that have been posted. line for the first time on Monday.

The investigations are part of a state law (HB 233) that was approved by the Legislature and Gov. Ron DeSantis last year. The law requires that surveys be conducted annually.

Republican supporters of the polls have touted them as a way to gauge what the law calls “intellectual freedom and diversity of viewpoints” on campuses. State university system chancellor Marshall Criser also expressed high hopes for the investigations during a meeting of the system’s board of governors last week.






Criss III


“I hope it’s a point of pride when I talk to you again,” Criser told the board. “This has never been done in this country before. We are doing a one hundred percent census of our students, faculty and staff.

But the teachers’ union is crying foul and warning that poll results that will be collected by schools and given to state leaders could be used against higher education institutions. The union issued a press release the same day as the polls, urging employees and students to ignore the voluntary polls.

“The state will present all data collected from this investigation, regardless of what it shows, as evidence that our profession indoctrinates students. So I see no reason for our faculty to voluntarily provide information for this purpose when the whole instrument was designed to harm higher education in the first place,” said Patrick Niner, president of the union of professors at Florida Gulf Coast University.

One version of the surveys given to students asks them how they view political trends on campus and how comfortable they feel expressing their views. For example, the survey probes students’ agreement or disagreement with whether their teachers “use class time to express their own social or political beliefs without objectively discussing opposing social or political beliefs.”

Similarly, a version provided to employees of colleges and universities asks questions about how respondents perceive the political leanings of their colleagues, students, and management at their institution.

“If you ‘agree’ or ‘strongly agree’ that an expectation of receiving a contract/continuing tenure is that faculty attribute to a particular political viewpoint, indicate which political viewpoint is the ‘wait’, says one such question, giving the options ‘liberal, ‘conservative’ and ‘other’.

Meanwhile, the faculty union is a plaintiff in an ongoing lawsuit challenging the 2021 law. U.S. District Chief Judge Mark Walker last week denied a request for a preliminary injunction that would have prevented the polls from being released.

But Walker also denied a state motion to dismiss the case. The Chief Justice issued a three-page ruling on Tuesday rejecting arguments that the plaintiffs lacked the legal capacity to continue with the lawsuit.

Targeted nursing home care

DeSantis signed another batch of bills from the 2022 legislative session on Wednesday, including a hotly debated measure that will change staffing standards in nursing homes.

The most controversial part of the bill makes changes regarding certified practical nurses, who provide much of the hands-on care in nursing homes.

Current law requires certified practical nurses to provide a minimum of 2.5 hours of direct care per resident per day. The bill reduces that to two hours. The measure also changes a requirement that certified practical nurses and registered nurses provide a weekly average of 3.6 hours of direct care per patient per day, allowing time spent by other types of workers such as physiotherapists.

Proponents have said the changes provide care homes with more flexibility, which in turn could address staffing shortages.

But seniors’ advocacy group AARP Florida and other critics have argued that the measure would reduce resident care.







Jamie Mongiovi

Mongiovi


“This cuts the time CNAs spend with nursing home residents by 20 percent, and we absolutely oppose any reduction in nursing home care,” AARP spokeswoman Jamie Mongiovi said.

DeSantis also signed a measure to ensure that patients and residents of hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities can have contact with visitors.

Dubbed the “No Patient Left Alone Act” (SB 988), the legislation was designed as a response to many facilities cutting off or limiting visitation during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nursing home bills were among 42 pieces of legislation signed by the governor.

Challenger takes off for an agricultural race

Chuck Nadd, a Winter Park resident who flew helicopters for the U.S. military, filed paperwork Monday to fight Senate Speaker Wilton Simpson in the Republican primary for the state’s agriculture commissioner.

Nadd criticized Simpson and other legislative leaders for failing to pass the congressional redistricting maps sought by DeSantis. He also asked Simpson about immigration and his support for the sugar industry, while touting his own platform as promoting “clean water and a strong conservative agenda for the growth”.

DeSantis declined to pick his favorites when asked about the primary on Tuesday.

The governor said Simpson “helped us with a number of different things.” But, DeSantis added, “we still have work to do. We still have work to do this year. But hopefully we’ll be able to get a lot of good stuff across the finish line.

STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Ron DeSantis signed 42 bills into law on Wednesday, including a hotly debated measure that will change staffing standards in nursing homes.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “The private property insurance market in Florida has collapsed, and it’s obvious that we need to call a special session to deal with this dire situation.” – State Senator Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, on his push to question lawmakers about holding a special legislative session on insurance.

Schools are downgraded by Ofsted if children questioned by inspectors cannot remember the names of rivers in geography or struggle to explain key concepts in the story, school leaders say.

Under a new inspection framework, schools risk being graded if students don’t remember or correctly articulate what they’ve learned, sometimes years ago, when put to a ‘pop quiz’ impromptu by the inspectors. At a flagship secondary school, an outstanding grade was downgraded to good when 11- and 12-year-olds were unable to clearly explain “the principle of the rule of law”.

Ofsted inspections in England resumed late last year after a suspension during the pandemic. Schools are judged on a new framework introduced in 2019, which focuses more on teaching and curriculum. Exceptional schools that were, until recently, exempt from routine inspection are now being visited.

Amanda Spielman, Ofsted’s chief education inspector, said she expects the number of outstanding schools, currently one in five, to be halved under the new scheme.

Within this framework, inspectors carry out “in-depth explorations” in four to six subject areas to explore planning, teaching and impact on student learning. This involves inspectors asking randomly selected students what they have learned to test what they know and remember.

School leaders’ organizations are increasingly concerned that schools are being devalued due to responses given by nervous children, some of whom are infants, being questioned without warning by adults they do not know.

Inspection reports note ‘gaps in student knowledge and understanding’ and cite examples of students unable to remember or articulate the content being taught or displaying ‘shallow’ or ‘disjointed’ understanding. Schools say too much weight is given to these answers. The Ofsted manual says inspectors should take a ‘holistic view’ of education quality and use a variety of types of evidence in their judgements.

Despite its borough’s best GCSE results in 2019 and results for disadvantaged pupils above the national average for non-disadvantaged pupils, Ursuline High School, a Catholic school for girls in Wimbledon, has just been downgraded from excellent to good .

The school, considered a flagship secondary school by Merton Council, challenged the judgment. He believes that the downgrading is due, in large part, to the principal inspector’s concern about the responses of Year 8 students to questions he asked about “the principle of the rule of law” that they covered in 7th grade. According to the school, this incident was given too much prominence and was misused as evidence of a more systemic problem in the quality of education. In the 2019 GCSE results, 85% of the school’s history students scored 9-5, with half getting the top marks of 7-9.

Ursuline High’s submission to Ofsted said: ‘The school does not dispute the finding that the subject of the rule of law was not sufficiently explicit in the learning programmes. The school, however, disputes the disproportionate weight given to this fact to support the overall assessment that the quality of its teaching is therefore not exceptional.

“To do so would be to give undue weight to this piece of evidence and inconsistent with the overall thesis that an accurate judgment of quality should only be reached after considering all the evidence.”

In another case, inspectors who downgraded Coalway Community Infant School in the Forest of Dean from ‘exceptional’ to ‘needs improvement’ cited a case where pupils, aged under seven, could not not “order important events of history as they have gaps in their knowledge”.

Headteachers’ organizations said last night that other schools had had similar experiences.

“Headteachers are increasingly concerned about the conclusions some inspectors are drawing in response to pupils saying the ‘wrong’ thing or giving the ‘wrong’ answer or not understanding a question,” said Ian Hartwright, policy adviser Principal at the National Association of Head Teachers. . “It’s really problematic to try to assess what kids know by asking them ‘quiz pop’ questions and see if they remember things and can articulate [them] adequately. This type of approach is subjective and variable. Neither is a good thing in an inspection system where you need consistency.

He cited the example of a school that felt it had been graded because students in a geography lesson could not remember the name of a river they had covered in a lesson.

“I just had another example on my desk last week where a school is absolutely convinced it meets the benchmark for excellence, but it stumbled because the kids were asked something they had learned the previous year in design technology and they weren’t I can’t remember. According to the inspector, it showed that their knowledge was not consolidated,” Hartwright added. “But the inspectors didn’t just don’t have time to accurately interrogate the program in this way during a two-day inspection.

An Ofsted spokeswoman said: ‘Talking to pupils is an important part of the inspection process, to help assess whether the school’s teaching intentions match what pupils know and understand. Actually. But it is never true that students’ answers to questions would be the only reason for a grade change in a school.
