More WaPo NCLB

A few weeks back the Washington Post’s Outlook section ran a big package on No Child Left Behind. I thought it was good attention to important issues but didn’t give readers enough background to really understand what was happening. Kevin Carey thought it was skewed. And now, former Post reporter and current Ed Truster Karen Chenoweth has taken up the challenge laid down by some of the DC-area principals interviewed for the piece: Show us schools that are doing more. Her take on that from the WaPo’s website will no doubt set off a frenzy of debate about (a) whether these schools are as good as she says and (b) whether they’re representative of anything. But that’s a debate worth having.
