Testing waivers taken away from Ed Dept officials for 2020-21

education, education news | July 28, 2020

Jim Blew, assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Education, recently suggested states should not expect standardized testing waivers for the 2020-21 school year, Chalkbeat reports. Waivers from state testing requirements were previously offered during the spring due to coronavirus-related school closures.Merrie Najimy, president of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, argues, however, that standardized testing in the upcoming school year will pull teachers away from providing for students' social-emotional needs, which have been emphasized during the closures. The sentiment is echoed by education leaders in other states who say the tests would take time and money from helping students heal and catch up on learning.Those who support reinstating standardized testing this year say assessments are critical to understand expanded inequities and where students stand after remote learning, arguing the data can inform policy decisions, guide teachers in their instruction, and help parents understand their children's performance.

D2iQ | July 09, 2020

D2iQ, the leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud platforms that power smarter Day 2 operations, today announced the release of Conductor, a new interactive learning platform that enables enterprises to access hands-on cloud native courses and training. With Conductor, developers and operators can now learn Kubernetes on actual clusters right from their web browser, increasing the team's capability and maximizing resource utilization.According to a recent D2iQ-sponsored survey with Vanson Bourne, only 23% of organizations believe they have the talent required to successfully complete their cloud native journey. As enterprises move from legacy to cloud native applications, the demand for Kubernetes has significantly increased. However, once moving closer to production and Day 2 operations, they are met with the complexity involved in migrating to a complete Kubernetes environment while also struggling to keep pace with the skills required to maintain it.Conductor addresses the growing skill gap through hands-on courses and labs that are curated by CNCF-certified engineers and trainers and focused on Kubernetes and the entire cloud native lifecycle, including containerization, CI/CD, observability and security. Through the Conductor Admin interface, administrators can track learner proficiency and ensure training is completed before developers and operators are allowed to interact with the organization's production environment.
