Here are some relatively recent useful articles on education policy issues:
Confronting the Free Marketeers: Will They Plow Through Us? is by Anthony Cody. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles Explaining Why Schools Should Not Be Run Like Businesses.
Profits, Lies, and Education Innovation is by Audrey Watters. I’m adding it to the same list.
Joel Klein’s Misleading Autobiography is by Richard Rothstein. You should also look at This is Why Our Current Education Debate is Toxic by Sara Mead, who attacks the Rothstein article. Her attack is without merit, but it’s worth reviewing the comments readers left.
Why Teacher Evaluation Shouldn’t Rest on Student Test Scores is from Fair Test. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Effective Student & Teacher Assessments.
Take Student Complaints With Caution is by Walt Gardner at Education Week. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Students Evaluating Classes (And Teachers).
