TENURED, CHICKEN LITTLE UI PROFS THROWING CHILDISH TANTRUMS

9-30-15

Greetings, Governor Branstad, Interim UI President Robillard, Gazette Guest Column Writers and all—

Tuesday’s 9-29-15 Cedar Rapids Gazette added 520 more childish, tantrum words the tenured, chicken little UI profs are throwing at the Iowa Board of Regents.  The sky is falling at party school UI, the childish, tenured profs are running and ruining. 

Governor Branstad told the profs to calm down and it is far past time for interim president Jean Robillard to take charge and  order some unpaid leaves for the rotten apples in UI’s academia barrel.  Enough is enough!!

Beyond that, how about teaching UI education students how to teach the 5 essential scientific components for teaching reading?  Stop the academic abuse of Iowa’s kids!!

IOWA UNIVERSITIES DON'T TEACH 5 ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS FOR TEACHING READING

The National Council on Teacher Quality Evaluation of Universities evaluated the following Iowa universities for their Reading Instruction Performance On Teaching Teachers the  FIVE ESSENTIAL SCIENTIFIC COMPONENTS FOR TEACHING READING.  Here is what they found, and it is all bad news!!

Buena Vista University—teaches 4 of 5

U of I—teaches 2 of 5

UNI—teaches 1 of 5

ISU and others were not evaluated, but are expected to be no different. 

The entire National Council report can be found on website:  http://www.nctq.org/nctq/images/nctq_reading_study_app.pdf
