' In its 'Room for Debate' feature, The NY Times has done a great disservice to the public by its incoherent reporting on the recent court decision in Connecticut. The Times continued its practice of citing people who had not read the decision.This does not inform the public.  The judge says the legislature should fix the funding formula because the property tax-base of funding disadvantages poor children. But , incredibly he goes on to say that the teacher evaluation system is broken and teachers should be judged by student performance, which reveals his ignorance of the flaws and repeated failures of this method. He says that money spent on profoundly disabled children is wasted, which ignores federal law.   Let’s hope the New York Times soon finds the education editor it has advertised for, and that the editor is deeply knowledgable about 15 years of failed federal policies.'
