I’ve recently re-started an effort I’ve tried to do previously by regularly highlighting previous posts and articles I’ve shared in previous years that I think might be worth a second look.

Here’s an excerpt, which is a quote from a 2010 study from The U.S. Department of Education:
That’s a dangerous percent. Communities spending approx. 80% of the BOE budget for 10% impact? What would happen if that $$$ was redirected to the 90% responsible for their academic performance?
Some form of much less expensive daily activities and supervision of students could be figured out I think.
The EdReform emperor is buck naked. But his friends the commercial purveyors of miracle edu-fixes remain fat and happy.
