Mike Klonsky reports on a public radio debate between the chief spokesman for Education Secretary Duncan and my favorite education writer, Richard Rothstein.

I’d encourage you to read Mike’s analysis of the discussion, which he titles “Punching A Marshmallow.”

He’s also kind enough to provide a link to a recording of the debate, titled “Will The ‘Race To The Top’ Leave No Child Behind?” The discussion starts at the eight minute mark.
