Student Learning Among Minorities Flatlinesavoiceofreason

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 16:42:44 +0000

The WSJ had an interesting article about how the NAEP is reporting smaller gain for minority elementary students since President Obama has gone about dismantling some of the key provisions (the stick in the carrot/stick) of NCLB.  The article is interesting in its information and the data is not surprising that NAEP scores have diminished […](image)

Baseball – My Tenuous Cord with this Cultureavoiceofreason

The people I met were friendly, white and […](image)
