The Ed Reform Glossary You Need

Peter Greene at CURMUDGUCATION - 9 hours ago
If that Amazon gift certificate is burning a hole in your pocket, I have a few suggestions. Let's start with this one. In 2006, education historian Diane Ravitch published *EdSpeak*, a glossary of education policy jargon to help those folks who found it all, well, jargonny. But the education world has shifted around just a tad since 2006, and it is time for a brand new version of the critical guide to education policy jargon. To help manage the large project, Ravitch brought in a collaborator, Nancy Bailey, which is good news for all of us, because Bailey is a writer with serious ch... more »

Michelle Rhee Has Been Robbed

Rhee was the previous decade's best-known public face of education reform, culminating in that infamous Time cover of her holding a broom.

A poll earlier this summer found that just 18 percent of Americans prefer to “take military action against Iran” as against 78 percent wanting to “rely mainly on economic and diplomatic efforts.” It is in part du... more »
