    One last time: Standardized tests measure family income and family education. Teachers have little impact on those things.

    Tenure simply means that a teacher can only be fired for a just cause - not "just cause" they want to. @whoopigoldberg

    I guess walking into Target with an AK-47 is just fine with everyone, but let me walk in one time naked & everybody is running & screaming.

    Yes, I'd like to see human rights restored to The Ukraine; but I'd like to see human rights restored to American public school students too.

    It seems impossible, but Campbell Brown has even less credibility than Michelle Rhee. Has she ever set foot in a classroom?

    Bill Gates says that Common Core is not the Fed take over of schools. He should know since he's now the de facto head of the Dept. of Edu.

    Campbell Brown IS right about just 1 thing - when her sponsors are found out, highly unpleasant things will be said about them.

    If you think that replacing trained, experienced teachers with inexperienced 5 week wonders is cost effective - you might be an Ed reformer

    Here's an idea edu reformers - how about if public school children take the same number of standardized tests as Bill Gates' children do.
