Reading gains or padding a reume?

Is anyone really surprised that at a time when Dr. Sandra Johnson is in serious contention for a superintendent position in Glendale, AZ a study appears propping up her credentials?

Even if the study is completely accurate.and we'll have to see if that's true, the timing is pretty fortuitous.

“My colleagues and I have spent a long time working in the Metro Nashville Public Schools, working with a whole bunch of teachers to develop and to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of instructional programs for children from pre-school through elementary school,” Fuchs said.

The biggest problem isn't 'pre-school through elementary' it's those high school students that are crashing and burning. Can we focus on them--they're the ones who don't have any time left.
