11 states get failing grades on public school policies from advocacy group
from The New York Times
In just a few short years, state legislatures and education agencies across the country have sought to transform American public education by passing a series of laws and policies overhauling teacher tenure, introducing the use of standardized test scores in performance evaluations and expanding charter schools. Such policies are among those pushed by StudentsFirst, the advocacy group led by Michelle A. Rhee, the former schools chancellor in Washington. Rhee has generated debate in education circles for aggressive pursuit of her agenda and the financing of political candidates who support it.
