What’s not working in education


From Anna Kamenetz’s  article in nprEd:

  • Achievement standards: as somestudents are left behind while others advance
  • Achievement tests: high performing schools give fewer tests
  • School choice: private schools offer no significant advantages over public schools, on average
  • Small class size: small class size needs to be paired with training and support for teachers to collaborate more closely with students
  • More money: no relationship between money spent and results earned
