Duncan does his best Rivers

Arne Duncan got bad grades on his phone call with teachers. He calls Cody back. Does his best Joan Rivers: "Can we talk?"

But will congress and the administration take heed of BBA's new talking points on ESEA re-authorization? Including:
Neither schools nor teachers should be held accountable based primarily on test scores of students. Such accountability can lead to gross misidentification of failing schools and creates incentives to teach to the test, narrow the curriculum, and substitute drill for education.

  1. I think it's a semi-hopeful sign that he got the call, like maybe Duncan is afraid of him. Fascinating regardless.


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
