Peter Goodman is a former New York City high school teacher who blogs insightfully about state and local politics and education.

In this post, he analyzes “Reign of Error,” noting that I am neither left or right, as those words are ordinarily used.

He concludes:

“I finished the book on an intellectual high – how could anyone not read the “Reign of Error” and be convinced of the idiocy of the current destructive policies? Yet, Joel Klein and Michelle Rhee and Eva Moskowitz and Arne Duncan continue to badger and threaten and bluster.

“Will Diane turnaround a decade of failed, selfish policies?

“I hope the “Reign of Error” is a beginning of a new era in education.”
