Wow - Joe Nocera got SO much wrong about Joel Klein's tenure as chancellor of the NYC school system in this Times piece.
I left a comment on his Times blog about just how much he got wrong.
It's on a different post, as the Klein piece does not have a comment section.
But you ought to leave Nocera some comments about the crap he wrote about Klein too.
I told him if he knows as much about business as he does about education, I'm going to stop reading his business stuff.
Because the test scores are NOT up, though Nocera writes that they are.
Apparently he missed when the state revealed that the test scores over the past few years were inflated.
He also writes that the grad rates are up, but those of us in the system know how those stats are phony too through such things as credit recovery and the like.
So leave Nocera some frank comments about how little he knows about Klein and education and let's see if we can break through some of Nocera's ignorance.
Nocera's blog is here.
