Here’s today’s “round-up” of good school reform-related posts:
Are Public Schools Supermarkets? is by Walt Gardner at Education Week. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles Explaining Why Schools Should Not Be Run Like Businesses.
Says Who? Lots of Folks, Actually… is by Robert Pondiscio. He’s gathered quite a few quotes from school reformers on the topic of the role of poverty and the role of teachers. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Learn What Impact A Teacher & Outside Factors Have On Student Achievement. He also raises some questions about a post written by Nancy Flanagan. You can find her response in the comments section there and in her post here.
