Here are some recent useful posts and articles on educational policy issues (You might also be interested in The Best Articles, Videos & Posts On Education Policy In 2016 – Part Two):
‘Tax Credit Scholarships,’ Praised By Trump, Turn Profits For Some Donors is from NPR. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning Why School Vouchers Are A Bad Idea (& Other Commentaries On “Choice”).
For Trump and DeVos, a Florida Private School Is a Model for Choice is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to the same list.
DeVos and Tax Credit Vouchers: Arizona Shows What Can Go Wrong is from The New York Times. It’s going on the same list.
America Needs Public School Choice, Not Private School Vouchers is by Richard Kahlenberg. Yup, on the same list.
“Heroism of Incremental Change.” Part 1 is an interesting piece by Larry Cuban. The Heroism of Incremental Change (Part 2) is also interesting, though I think an introduction talking about the civil rights movement is a little “off.” It’s one thing to talk about the value of incremental change in teaching methods. It’s a very different kettle of fish when talking about incremental change around basic human rights.
Study: When Tenure Is Taken Away, Teachers Leave is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Articles For Helping To Understand Both Why Teacher Tenure Is Important & The Reasons Behind Seniority-Based Layoffs.
