Reign of Error on Brian Lehrer - 30 Issues: Diane Ravitch on School Reform

Sometimes I'm down on Brian over his ed coverage but he gave Diane quite a good platform. But did I have to hear him play yet again a clip from Merryl Tisch? When I hear her it sounds like she's slurping milk between syllables. Diane pretty much covers most issues on charters -- except she didn't point to the attrition rate. Like how the numbers drop in each cohort as it marches on through the grades (no replacement like in public schools). As we showed in our film (see tab at top of this blog) the scores go up as the number of kids goes down through the grades.
