There have been a number of articles and posts over the years highlighting efforts in education and in health care to institute similarly misguided changes in both areas.
Here are ones that I’ve seen, and feel free to suggest more:
Medicare Penalizes Nearly 1,500 Hospitals For Poor Quality Scores is from NPR, and shows that some hospitals get penalized unfairly for the same reasons inner-city schools receive criticism.
Why Evaluate Teachers and Doctors Differently? is by Walt Gardner at Education Week.
Walt Gardner wrote another post — Preparing Doctors and Teachers.
Coaching is Good for Doctors and Teachers Both is by John Thompson.
Bad Medicine is by EduShyster, and discusses the impact of similar elements of “school reform” into the medical profession.
The Differences Between Medical Tests and Standardized Tests is by Diane Ravitch. It doesn’t quite fit, but I’m still adding it here.
