Max Pringle reports from Sacramento.</p><p class="p5">The superintendents represent a good chunk of the state’s population. They’re making the case that the “No Child Left Behind Act’s” focus on boosting test scores leaves instructors too little time to teach skills that students will need later in life. Troy Flint is with the Oakland Unified School District.</p> Thu, 18 Jul 2013 00:46:00 +0000 Max Pringle 18525 at http://kvpr.org On Valley Edition: Restorative Justice; Valley Fever; Taxes; Nurses; Bakersfield Jazz Festival http://kvpr.org/post/valley-edition-restorative-justice-valley-fever-taxes-nurses-bakersfield-jazz-festival <p></p><p>This week on Valley Edition we explore the region through reports and interviews on valley fever, restorative justice in schools, health care, taxes and a Jazz festival in the area.</p> Tue, 07 May 2013 19:02:59 +0000 Juanita Stevenson, Rebecca Plevin & Joe Moore 14743 at http://kvpr.org On Valley Edition: Restorative Justice; Valley Fever; Taxes; Nurses; Bakersfield Jazz Festival New Approach To Classroom Discipline Pays Off at Fresno's Yosemite Middle School http://kvpr.org/post/new-approach-classroom-discipline-pays-fresnos-yosemite-middle-school <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Teacher Jenna Perry’s </span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">7th</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> grade English class at Fresno Unified’s Yosemite Middle School sounds like most others.
