Stand For Children’s* Jonah Edelman discusses pre-K in USA Today.
Fordham’s Kathleen Porter Magee throws cold water on some common myths about testing, #2 is key. In my view there is little doubt that testing is causing distortion in schools. But underneath the noise the key questions are, why is that happening? And is it inherent or a byproduct of other problems? Kathleen lays that issue out well.
TNTP’s Tim Daly takes a hard look at the evaluation stalemate in New York. I’m surprised what’s happening there hasn’t received more attention. It’s illustrative of the hard issues, constraints, and tensions underneath all the happy talk.
