The Education Gadfly Show

Rick is back from his booze cruise and ready to go. This week, he and Mike discuss Fordham's new AP report, taxpayers versus parents making education decisions, and Obama's first 100 days in office. Then Amber explains the long-term trends on the NAEP and Rate that Reform exposes itself (for a good cause!).

Horne Supreme Court case, and NGA and CCSSO's joint statement in support of national standards. Then Amber explains a new Manhattan Institute study on NYC's performance pay scheme and Rate that Reform is thick with research. (Research guiding reform?! Shocking!)

This week, Mike and Rick discuss Fordham's new voucher paper, the future of private school choice as a viable ed policy strategy, and whether students should be able to check off more than one box when listing their race.
