As I first pointed out two weeks ago, the Kennedy report on Reading First was not a “Congressional study” in the sense of something like CRS or the GAO would do, despite being described as such in the press. It was internal, and partisan from the start. The good folks at the Title I Monitor have dug into this further, exposing some of the report’s problems. RL Colvin over at Early Stories thinks that’s a good thing. I agree.
