Here are a few good articles and posts on school reform issues that I’ve read over the past couple of days:
Nelson Lichtenstein: ‘A governor like Walker is completely correct that it’s in his self-interest to ignore public opinion.’ comes from Ezra Klein’s Washington Post column. I’m adding the link to The Best Resources For Learning About Attacks On Teachers & Other Public Sector Workers In Wisconsin.
Fact-Challenged Policy is by Richard Rothstein, and is a longer version of a previous piece of his I’ve shared. I’m adding the link to The Best Posts Responding To Bill Gates’ Appallingly Clueless Op-Ed Piece.
The Education of Diane Ravitch is a nice question and answer session with Diane Ravitch. It appeared in Mother Jones.
