Interesting piece by Diane Ravitch in Answer Sheet on mayoral control.
She and then many of the voluminous commenters make use of NAEP scores. Not
unreasonable, esp trend lines, but too many seem to take the NAEP levels as
gospel - which we know is dangerous because those levels were set with
flawed processes leading to absurdly high definitions of 'proficient.'
