Attention Simpsons fans, this is the harshest NYT editorial ever!
Connecticut has one of the worst achievement gaps and an abysmal history when it comes to educating poor and minority children. It is the last place that should be challenging the most important educational reform of the last half-century.
Ouch. That’s throwing at the head.
Good editorial though Eduwonk disagrees that the assessment provisions are funded as well as they could be though the funding isn’t low-enough to justify this sort of thing. The Bush Administration is just missing a great opportunity to take assessment to a new level.
BTW: On a similar issue Fox fans, don’t miss the most recent episode of When Piche and Wiener Attack!
