Jersey Jazzman reveals there is no evidence America’s non-profit, public education is a disaster

09 Feb
Jersey Jazzman writes, “Contrary to the assertions of the reformy, there is no compelling evidence that their “reforms” will work; actually, there is at least some evidence they will, in fact, be harmful.

– There is no evidence charter school proliferation will work; it may, in fact, be harmful.

– There is little evidence vouchers will work; they may, in fact, be harmful.

– There is no evidence test-based teacher evaluation will work; it may, in fact, be harmful.

– There is no evidence merit pay works; it may, in fact, be harmful.

– There is no evidence eliminating teacher tenure will work; there is, in fact, plenty of evidence it may be harmful and expensive.

– There is no evidence the expansion of high-stakes, standardized testing will work; in fact, it is harmful.

I’ll add here that, contrary to the above, there is good evidence to support reforms such as class size reduction, peer assistance and review-type teacher evaluation, and school funding reform. – See more at: http://jerseyjazzman.blogspot.com/2015/02/burden-of-reformy-proof.html#sthash.2qu7NvC8.dpuf

    Between one thing and another, it’ll be amazing if we have an education system in another few years.

      I’ve been thinking about the same. It’s possible that we could roll back public educatoin to 1900 when less than 7% of the population was graduating from high school and even fewer were going to college. With all the automation, who needs humans to fill jobs. The only use humans have for corporation is as consumers. Wait! If humans don’t have jobs than the corporations won’t have consumers and there will be no need for humans on the earth. Do we call that poetic justice?
