Rotherham for the win!
Except for when he can’t numerate the cases of when teacher unions protect child sexual abusing teachers.
Bill Clinton taught Andy well.
This is an ambitious project, but the question is how do you measure
the gap difference or how do you work towards reducing the gap, considering that there are factors outside the schooling system that
affect the performance of students.

Those are excuses, according to Andy. Any high performing teacher will get the same test score performance from the students living in poverty to those with a Mercedes awaiting them on their 16th birthday.
Well, there’s accumulating evidence that some teachers elicit substantially higher achievement from poor students than other teachers of similarly poor students. There’s also evidence that children in low-income schools can gain just as much as children in higher-income schools and that teachers in low-income schools can add as much value to their students’ achievement as teachers in higher income schools. It seems to me that it is terribly important to understand the conditions surrounding these findings and to assess their implications for policy. Thank goodness Andy goes there and shame on those who answer by playing ridiculous word games about children who get a Mercedes for their sweet 16.
Sweet 16: is a coming of age party celebrating a girl’s sixteenth birthday, primarily in the United States and Canada.
Of course Art would use a gender specific term.
THe crap Andy is peddling has been tried in the District of Columbia.
And by the aqua buddha god of test scores, not much to show.
Great article concerning mass income. I really enjoyed reading it and will be back to view more of your posts!
