Jersey Jazzman to Reformers: Where Is the Evidence for Your Claims?

09 Feb

Why the conservative love affair with vouchers, when we now have evidence from Milwaukee, Cleveland, and D.C. that vouchers drain money from public schools without producing a better education for our children?

Jersey Jazzman pulls together a host of reformer ideas in this post and shows that none of them has any evidence behind it.

How can public schools, which take everyone, compete with and match the braggadocio of charter schools, which promise that every student will graduate and go to a four-year college, even if it isn’t true?

Why do policymakers continue to push merit pay, even though it has failed again and again for nearly a century?

Why the conservative love affair with vouchers, when we now have evidence from Milwaukee, Cleveland, and D.C. that vouchers drain money from public schools without producing better education?

Jersey Jazzman asks for proof. Before accepting any of the reformer policies, reformers should show the evidence? Indignation is not evidence. Nor are promises of miraculous results.
