Michelle Rhee in the poor house?

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 […]

Special episode of At the Chalk Face tonight, 9PM EST/6PM PST

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.

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 […]

The chronicles of opting out of #testing

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 […]

#Optout of #testing in #PA

A local interview with Tim Slekar on opting his children out of testing in Central Pennsylvania. Should Central be capitalized?

So, my boy Tim Slekar is up on #education week about opting out

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 […]
