Jersey Jazzman is watching Education Nation so the rest of us don’t have to.

He says that teachers are more outspoken this year than in the past. He thinks they are emboldened by the Chicago strike. They are mad as hell and they won’t sit still while non-educators bash them.

He reports that one fellow got up and made a brash statement about the success of his school.

Let’s begin by saying that real educators don’t brag about test scores.

Be that as it may, Jersey Jazzman checked the sources and discovered that this particular school has a very large attrition rate.

With more fact-checking like this, reformers might be reluctant to make boasts.

We should all do it.

But this time around, I am leaving the job to JJ.
