Leonie Exposed Untruths and Distortions in NY Times Testing Piece While Giving Credence to NY Post

See Sunday's NY Post, which unlike the other papers, actually gave some historical context for our skepticism.... Leonie Haimson
Showing how the Times gets it wrong and the Post got it right - or more right- is always a fun exercise. But while the Post is anti-teacher, some teachers and parents have found a friend in Post reporter Sue Edelman. Here's is Leonie's email and link to her blog post correcting the NY Times account.

Please check out the Saturday's NY Times article about how various individuals and groups are using the scores for political ends, and included me in that group.

Then read my response: http://nycpublicschoolparents.blogspot.com/2016/08/my-response-to-ny-times-article-about.html
In yesterday’s NY Post, Sue Edelman quoted me as calling claims of big improvement “the big lie” and comparing them to the infamous test score inf lation from 2002-2009.
Please post your comments on the blog!
Thanks Leonie
