Education Reform Debate on PBS

Found out about this from over on Eduwonk. Interesting debate on pbs about whether or not it’s appropriate to fire teachers if – year after year – students are failing… Is it better to give them new tools/new focus, and how should you get them to accept new tools/new focus/new testing. Not surprisingly, DC Mayor Fenty and DCPS Chancellor Rhee are considered in the reporting on this issue.
