Another 'reform' hoax!: The Relay 'Graduate School of Education' is a hoax. Its location is a post office box. It has no scholars, no researchers, no faculty other than charter teachers. It represents the tip of an approaching iceberg that threatens the education of  most under-served students and sells short the very teachers to whom we owe the best preparation, support, working conditions, and compensation available. It is a trade school for teaching tricks of test-taking and how how to raise test scores and maintain no-excuses discipline.  Relay is selling itself as an answer to the shortage of well-prepared teachers of color, but its rigid and limited methods do not deliver on that promise, nor do they produce well-prepared teachers of any color. It is  being framed as a solution to minority teacher recruitment and an engine for ameliorating educational inequities.
