No Nonsense From Gordon

Over at Think Progress Robert Gordon weighs-in on the New York teacher tenure debate:

Test scores should not count for everything, but this law says they may count for nothing. The law broadly bars consideration of “student performance data” at all.

A prohibition on using relevant data is something out of the Bush Administration’s EPA. It is, to quote a progressive editorial page, “an absurd ban that does a disservice to the state’s millions of public school students.”
