It amazes me that this idiot cheerleader's prattling rates a news column.

Brilliant headline...assuming readers don't have windows.

The notion that the Pats 45-7 beatdown of the clueless Colts had anything to do with air pressure is absurd. Lets move on.

I teach at Boston Latin Academy, where we work very hard to keep all of the kids who get in, regardless of challenges they may face with behavioral and/or health/attendance issues. The charters stand more »

Two points: 1. The "achievement gap" is about poverty, not education. 2. Massachusetts was the nation's leader in education before this particular round of education "reform" (a patently absurd term) more »

Bottom line: charters cheat, and do not produce results superior to publics. Add to that the insane attrition rate of those students whom their transient staffs cannot handle - thereby pumping them ba more »

I ask Scott, do/did your kids (in the frightening scenario wherein you reproduced) do extra time? Did you? Given that the answers to those questions are "no (shudder) and "no." Why do you feel that ev more »

"Scores have risen marginally." Exactly. To the detriment of actual education. This is what the Lehighs and their ilk either don't get (sometimes willfully, one thinks) or cannot understand. These tes more »

I hope Mr. Vaznis does some actual, research-based followup reporting here, rather than simply relying on the school department's skewed data and self-serving rhetoric. Track the retention rates of th more »

While no article could portray the "entire picture" accurately, there are certainly issues that need to be addressed. I am on the BLA faculty, and experienced no "intimidating and harassing" on the pa more »

The great thing here, MikeArnold, is that - while I am a teacher in the BPS (you know, overpaid, six hour days, three months off per year, no extra heavy lifting required - this is your take, right?), more »

I thank the Globe for the editorial headline to this article. Without it, I may have been unable to understand the purpose of Grossman's ads. more »
