We’re taking some time off after recording a bunch of studio shows. For your listening pleasure, here’s a studio show from July 2013 with one of Slekar’s colleagues, Dr. Jed Hopkins. We get into some insightful international comparisons.
I hate it when I do this. I hate when I write about Queen Rhee. She get’s more time than any reform charlatan deserves but she opened her mouth (for how much $) at the Center for Leadership Development and Research at Stanford’s graduate business school and then decided to write about her profound insights into […]
We’ve invited a great guest, which is why the special day and time: Alexia Garcia, student organizer of a Portland boycott of the OAKS test. Probably the best test acronym by far. There’s some information here I’ll quote from Education Week, which is in turn from OregonLive: Alexia Garcia, a Lincoln High School senior, said […]

At the Chalk Face, #edreform radio going national, this Sunday on WTDY FM Madison, WI, with our first guest @dianeravitch. Pass along, listen online
Who would have thought, I rinky-dink little podcast I started about two years ago would make it to syndicated talk radio? But here it is, professionally done, coming up this Sunday with our first guest Diane Ravitch. Perhaps this is unremarkable, I don’t know. But I don’t have a publicist or any actual support for […]
Here’s the quick promo for a nationally syndicated radio show that Tim and I recorded early January. There’s a clip from our interview with Diane Ravitch. She’s a good sport! Sounds great, disseminate widely people!
Tim and I just finished up, you can have a listen here. We went a little Arne Duncan go-nuts today, but there was a lot to talk about.
A pre-holiday treat for everyone. Enjoy! We’re going to talk a whole lot about Arne Duncan, a lot going on with him this last week or so.
The other half of At the Chalk Face the podcast, Tim Slekar, posted the first of what I think will be a semi-regular series on his experiences with an opt out movement in PA including more students and parents than he and his son. Should be interesting and I won’t keep my fingers crossed over […]
An early show today, check it out, progressive education chat! We’ll discuss vouchers, teacher evaluations, and the eradication of creativity in schools. Listen live or an archive, enjoy.
A local interview with Tim Slekar on opting his children out of testing in Central Pennsylvania. Should Central be capitalized?
Great piece by Anthony Cody up at Education Week about Tim and his family and their decision to opt out of the tests in PA. Not only is the interview very detailed, but can we take a moment to appreciate the pure magic of this comment? Thank you for this wonderful interview and for this […]
