The last “Bracey Report on the Condition of Public Education” is now available online. Readers of this blog will recall that Gerald Bracey was working on this report the night before his death last month at the age of 69.
In this, his 18th edition of the report, he offers a critical analysis of the research behind three popular education reform pushes: the call for high-quality schools, mayoral takeovers of school districts, and the drive for higher academic standards. The report is being published jointly by the Education in the Public Interest Center at the University of Colorado and the Education Policy Research Unit at Arizona State University.
