What's Wrong with Obama's Education Agenda? No Change We Can Believe In

Pedro NogueraPedro NogueraNYU's Pedro Noguera writes one of the most cogent critiques that has been written yet, summarizing our collective disappointment in the Obama administration's education program. The Obama/Duncan agenda, according to Noguera, is a hodge podge of programs without any understanding of what was fundamentally wrong with NCLB, and therefore, without any core vision. It relies on the same ill-conceived quick fixes that failed under the Bush administration. Noguera's essay is in this month's Nation magazine along with useful overivews by Linda Darling-Hammond, Diane Ravitch, and others. Its a must read and worth a subscription.
