Many readers have asked how they can contact CNN to respond to its interview with Michelle Rhee.
CNN has invited comments: http://schoolsofthought.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/05/rhee-on-saving-americas-schools/comment-page-1/
Bear in mind that the international rankings, which she loves to tout to embarrass America, its students and its teachers, predict nothing.
When the first international assessment was given in 1964, our students came in 11th of 12 nations.
Since then, our students typically rank in the bottom quartile or no better than the international average.
Yet we have the largest economy in the world.
We are number one in child poverty, which explains the performance of our students. The more poverty in a school, the lower its test scores; the less poverty, the higher the scores.
Almost 25% of our children live in poverty. Did Rhee mention that?
Please help inform CNN. Maybe they will get it right next time.
