Here are some recent good school reform posts and articles:
Low-income students and KIPP charter schools appeared in Valerie Strauss’ Washington Post blog. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles Analyzing Charter Schools.
VAM Nauseum: Bleeding the Patient is a post by David B. Cohen. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Value-Added” Approach Towards Teacher Evaluation.
5 reasons parents should oppose evaluating teachers on test scores appeared in Valerie Strauss’ Washington Post blog. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Effective Student & Teacher Assessments.
I’m adding A Glut of New Reports Raise Doubts About Obama’s Teacher Agenda by Dana Goldstein to the same list.
An Interesting Few Days is by Diane Ravitch and The “90/90/90 Schools” Myth is by Justin Baeder at Ed Week. Though they don’t specifically deal with attrition issues at so-called “miracle” schools, they raise other important challenges to them, so I’m adding both posts to The Best Posts About Attrition Rates At So-Called “Miracle” Schools.
