In the Capital NY story, he has a particularly telling quote:
Eric Nadelstern, a former deputy chancellor under Joel Klein credited with helping to implement some of the Bloomberg administration’s biggest educational reforms, says the first months of Fariña’s tenure should be marked by a clear commitment to raising the graduation rate, which is still below 70 percent.
“I don’t think the chancellor should come and nitpick their way through the system, saying ‘I like this’ or ‘I don’t like that,’” said Nadelstern.
“I think the first 100 days needs to be about putting together the most talented team they can possibly find and then working with that team to develop a long range plan on how to to go from a 66 percent graduation rate to a 100 percent rate in five years,” he said.
How's that for setting somebody up for failure?
100% graduation rate in five years.
That's kinda like No Child Left Behind's 100% proficiency in every demographic category by 2014 or a school gets declared "failing".
Be perfect or you're a failure.
Somehow reformers like Nadelstern never hold themselves to the same standards.
But they sure are laying down markers for de Blasio and Farina, aren't they?
What can you say about this turd, other than....unmitigated chutzpah.ReplyDelete
I have commented on Eric Nadelstern on "Ed the Apple".. He is a jerk and help create many of the awful problems we have today.ReplyDelete
He is an ed deformer and I can't wait for all his bogus creations disapper like the CFNs, the fsf, and Principal empowerment.
He is a self-serving ass, yes.Delete
Hey, Eric, kiss my tucchus.ReplyDelete
Careful of that hair dye he uses. Looks as toxic as his ed deform policies.Delete
I admit I do not know much about Mr. Nadelstern but if he wants to see the graduation rate improve, he should roll up his sleeves and volunteer to tutor a public school student in need of 1-1 homework assistance.ReplyDelete
No No No. Ed reformers are far too precious to be sullied by any such prole notions as running a classroom or actually interacting with kids. They specialize in critiquing the people who do this and writing policy from a safe distance on their ipads sipping lattes.Delete
Sean's right - these guys "lead". They get out of the classroom and "lead." They don't work 1 on 1 - they "scale up" and "lead."Delete
Gotta love the reformy use of the word "talented" too. Arne Duncan, Rahmbo and Chris Christie are all 'talented" in the worldview of ed deform. God help usReplyDelete
I love that word - "talent." We have "talent coordinators" at the DOE. Every time they come around, I think "When did we get into show bidness?"Delete
