Another good response to Rhee/Klein & Co….

I’m sorry, but the “manifesto” published in today’s Washington Post really pisses me off because it is built upon a false premise. It is authored by a number of urban school superintendents, including Chicago’s Ron Huberman, New York City’s Joel Klein, Washington DC’s Michelle Rhee, and New Orleans’ Paul Vallas. And it — intentionally? — misstates educational research.

“[T]he single most important factor determining whether students succeed in school is not the color of their skin or their ZIP code or even their parents’ income — it is the quality of their teacher.”

No. That is patently false. Go to the original…
