Here are some recent good school reform posts and articles:
Big expansion, big questions for Teach for America is from The Boston Globe. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles Raising Concerns About Teach For America.
What Counts as a Big Effect? (I) is by Aaron Pallas. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Understanding How To Interpret Education Research. Thanks to Scott McLeod for the tip, who also wrote a related post.

And I liked his comment at another blog where he wrote “Instead of looking for the statistics that make the greatest impact, we’re looking for the statistics that are the easiest to measure.”
