The Year in Education
USA Today reviews the year's top education stories in today's issue. They include the Spellings commission report on higher education, the SAT test scoring errors, and the ongoing debates about the effectiveness of NCLB. Nothing surprising, but it's interesting to see what the mainstream media views as important stories. Also in the papers today (in this case the Washington Post) is a column by Jay Mathews which is largely dismissive of the "Tough Choices or Tough Times" report (see below).
