I pulled this article off of Yahoo, and I thought it interesting that our Legislators in Washington knew even less about what is RTTT then those of us in Delaware. Seems that as they were busy with jobs bills, and a nominee hearing, Arne Duncan was slipping his “quiet revolution” under their noses. There was not even a question when the language came through with the the vague sentence which gives Duncan way too much power, “it allows for criteria as the secretary deems appropriate”. What really is worrisome to me is that buried half way through the article is the the following lines:
“Duncan had championed contests since he was the CEO of Chicago’s public schools, where he experimented with competitive pilot projects. The results, by most accounts, were mixed.”
You know we all have laughed at the nieve individual who we use to tell them, “If your that dumb I have a bridge I’d like to sell you”.
