The Post’s Jay Mathews is crushing madly on the Edwards education plan, and making mean fun of Richardson’s. Charlie Barone points out that, that despite all the complaints about too much testing, teachers in at least one California school still aren’t using results to inform instruction. He also agrees that the NYT story was off. Next up, Kevin Carey, who riffs off of an American Prospect article to say that those like Richard Rothstein who think economic reforms are more important than school reforms, over all, still shouldn’t attack school reform efforts. Or at least I think that’s what he’s saying. Last but not least, the BoardBuzz from NSBA has put out a side-by-side (PDF) comparing current law and Miller (and, ugh, their proposals). I love side by sides, but I don’t know if this one is any good. Seen a better one? Let us know.
