These Are Very Important Posts, Articles & Reports On School Reform Issues

Filed under school reform

Some new very important pieces on school reform have recently been published:

We need to fix the economy to fix education was written by David Sirota and appeared in Salon. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Learn What Impact A Teacher & Outside Factors Have On Student Achievement.

Making the wrong “Data-Driven Decisions” is by Carl Anderson (thanks to Dean Shareski for the tip). I’m adding it to The Best Resources Showing Why We Need To Be “Data-Informed” & Not “Data-Driven.”

Education ‘Miracles’ Don’t Survive Scrutiny is by Mike Rose. I’m adding it to The Best Posts About Attrition Rates At So-Called “Miracle” Schools.
