Closing the gap

National Journal Online asks its teacher-free panel of experts, what to do to close the achievement gap? The response from most is the usual blah, blah, blah. Monty Neill and Pedro Noguera, as expected, are on target. Andrew Rotherham, as expected, is the worst. He's still moaning over the collapse of Reading First, the great neocon reading swindle that nearly got past the investigators.


  1. Hey Mike, check out this article I wrote about Noguera and Making the Familiar Strange on the Demockracy site. Really enjoy following the blog

  2. Read it and liked it Fernando. I'm adding it to my sociology & education course syllabus for the fall.

  3. Now, that's a description of Reading First that I can agree with! Well said!


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
