The ESSA accountability edition

In this week's podcast, Mike Petrilli and Robert Pondiscio assess New York State’s decision to end timed tests, extract lessons from a former teacher’s troubled account of his time in the classroom, and discuss the most creative and worthwhile ideas that came out of Fordham’s ESSA Accountability Design competition. In the Research Minute, Amber Northern examines the value of recess.
