Corporate education reformer John King replaces Steiner at NYSED.
Meet the new corporate ed deform boss, same as the old corporate ed deform boss.
Get ready for all standardized testing all the time, more value-added evaluation jive (you know, the kind of "metrics" with a 12%-36% margin of error), more merit pay schemes, more charter school stuff.
In other words, nothing changes.
UPDATE: Here's how you know King will pursue a corporate-friendly, pro-privatization, pro-testing, pro-corporate reform agenda - Arne Duncan likes him.
