Our series resumes tomorrow: Last week, we began a multi-week series, Where the Test Scores Are.
As the series proceeds, we'll explore the apparent state of educational achievement in American public schools, as indicated by our most reliable international and domestic testing programs.
We'll also review the woeful journalism which persists, in our upper-end press corps, about the state of American public schools. This week, we'll turn to our one reliable domestic testing program as we explore the following theme:
Where the NAEP Scores Are.
Tomorrow, we'll start with this peculiar piece from yesterday's Washington Post. It drove the same old story-lines about our embarrassing, horrible schools.
Does its author, or the Post's editors, even know where the NAEP scores are? Or is it just the same old story: narrative all the way down?
