It doesn’t work.

There is NO evidence that any of the favorite Duncan et al reforms “work”–even on their own terms (much less mine). None. None. Yes, there are high-scoring schools who fit their description of a good school for low-income kids, and there are high scoring schools that don’t. But both are exceptions. We have to keep on pounding away at that simple FACT. And the by-products of these absurd ideas are frightening. For example: learning to close one’s eyes to cheating (like our corporate leaders have done and gotten away with.)

Keep saying. It doesn’t work it doesn’t work…. Even if the reformers intentions were angelic–it doesn’t work.
