I am not Completely Unsympathetic to All of Joel Klein's Ideas

“When [superintendents] stopped talking to me about bulletin boards, my scores went up 50 percent,” one principal said. (This principal told TC that he didn’t want his name in the press.) “The data speaks for itself.”

There's no particular reason to offer the Chancellor credit here. He removed one layer of bureaucracy (some of which busied itself with idiocy) and expanded and empowered a much more dangerous layer.

That there are individual, incidental benefits does not speak to the Chancellor's ideas.
