    Ha–i was going to make that point as well. Note Andy doesn’t point that out. He is guilty of the same strategies he pooh-poohs in another post.

    If someone who opposes them failed to point out such a detail, he would blast them. But he and his buddies do;t held themselves to the same standard.

    “Rhee credited a recent citywide focus on literacy for the school system’s gains.”

    Not Reading First, not charter schools, not new teachers, not TFA, not any of the conservative reform movement’s special sauce.

    I wonder if she truly has a clue why it happened.
