New data shows school "reformers" are full of it

Poor schools underperform largely because of economic forces, not because teachers have it too easy

Are you sick of highly-paid teachers?

There's a blog or two that takes issue with the math in the linked article. If it bothers you, too, change the wording from "babysitter" to "day care provider" and the only issue they manage to raise is suddenly solved.
