In this post, Ultican scrutinizes the 'Relay Graduate School of Education,” a program run by the charter industry to give master’s degrees to charter teachers who have mastered the arcane arts of no-excuses discipline and test-score raising. 'A lot of the blame should go to the elite leaders of ed reform who seem to have captured whole swathes of our government, but public school leaders have played a role too- they have accepted the subordinate position these folks assigned and swallowed too many of the sales pitches.'
Be the experts. Claim your earned authority. That’s why we hired you. If we wanted what ed reform churns out we would have hired THEM. Be the public school experts. Your local community will love you for it.
