Damn - I overpaid for Walker's mother!

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 »

The DESE couldn't reorganize a sock drawer.

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?

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.

Unfortunately, this article lead to a politically biased discussion that missed the point that Larry Harmon should not be writing on education in any way. His "opinion" is paid for by private interest more »

To NatHarthorne- your writing suggests that you are not a stupid man. Thus, your attribution to some suggestion that charters must "accept a cross section" is then counter suggestive. Either you refu more »

Facts - none: best reading scores in the nation among urban public schools, best high school graduation rate, best college completion rate. What article did you read? Oh - a Larry Harmon op-ed?! Then more »

There are four kinds of people who get involved in these discussions on education generated by the polemics of regular newspaper op-ed writers (like Larry Harmon) who are, by definition, not experts o more »

I love that Scot is so participatory. It suggests a fragile ego. Certainly, Colum White has it all over him in data. I have invited him into my classroom. Can the ignorantly convinced be constructivel more »

I love that you point out the "incompetent administrators," and Scott thinks they should have their way.
Posted 11/10/2013 07:02:17 EST
Lehigh, this is why I know that you are completely about ideology (unless, of course, you're being paid off, which I have not discounted), and not reality: "It's the teachers union on one side and the more »

The abuse of workers is a bad or worse for public sector workers. Witness the current teacher evaluation system that the "Stand For Children" (read: union killing, Koch brothers, Walton Foundation, na more »

Union dues cannot be used for political action, by law. Only national union presidents make money on the scale you suggest, and it is still less than that made by big-time corporate lawyers.

Why would anyone "dislike" this, aside from hoping to get a job in a (/an increasingly unlikely!) Connolly administration? He did EXACTLY the same thing he is now whining about. Beautiful.

Geo - are you being paid to be an idiot, or are you free lance?
