Ed Week interviews PAA director on EdTech

edtechedweek9-6-16Ed Week detailed our EdTech reports in this week’s print edition, and included an interview with PAA’s interim executive director, Julie Woestehoff.

The story begins:

An influential parent-advocacy group that has vocally opposed high-stakes testing, the Common Core State Standards, and charter school expansion has its sights on a new target: education technology.

Parents Across America, a nonprofit group with 44 chapters across 25 states, last month issued a set of resources warning of the “threats” posed by the explosion of digital- and online-technology use in schools, including rising screen time for children, increased testing and data collection, and what the group views as misguided teaching strategies based on low-quality digital products.

Ed Week only allows us to share that much, and asks that you read the rest of the article on their site.
