"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 »

Please desist from poking fun at our brethren-on-the-water. Here in beautiful Dorchester-By-The-Sea, we understand completely the privilege of being able to watch boaters' trash wash up on shore first 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 »

If the exam schools were disbanded, parents would never put them in another BPS high school. Moreover, affluent families that maintain Boston residences for the express purpose of obtaining a free, hi more »

tsynchonus - if the bridge falls down, it is because the engineer was given poor materials and faulty blueprints that he was required to follow by people who know nothing of bridge design. more »

The Globe's version of "journalism" has become so wretched as to be embarrassing. To publish an article about a report authored by one one man (French) with a clear financial stake in its "findings" t more »

We do not yet know who the Dems will trot out as their candidate. What we do know is that if the GOP proffers Christie, the Dems will win. This blustering fool loses on education, unions, women, and n more »

User - pretending that violating employment law is trampling on Catholics' first amendment rights is absurd. You cannot post a job and expect not to adhere to certain rules. They hired the best qualif more »

This letter underscores the contrast between opinions shared by those who have no understanding of education (like the Globe's op-ed writers) and those who do.

Again, "Nat" - who are you? Who pays you? You are clearly not an educator. You are great at lying. What do you get out of this, other than money?
Posted 01/04/2014 08:15:27 EST
What, Scot?! Charters suck at NAEP and SATs, compared to the publics. What fake data are you citing now? And "Nat" (or Scot, or whomever you are), respond to Localobservers deeply researched rebuttals more »

That "willingness" is a weak ego. Seriously? No real researcher does this. I just want Scot to go back to school - starting in grade 1 - for all the extra hours and days he espouses for ALL children, more »

I would like for Scot to go back to school - for the longer school day and year that he wants for all children. If that were to happen, he would be able to evaluate the data better, and would be a bet more »

"Lot's?" Do NOT thank a teacher!

Charters do a decent job - with the kids they KEEP! Mr. Lehigh pointedly ignores every piece of data regarding attrition and suspension and any studies that are not supportive of charters. Moreover, t more »

We have. Boston wins - every time, and in every way. NAEP, the Broad Foundation, on and on and on - it is better that you comment on an issue when you understand it.
