Lawyers: Not Enough Reform Lawsuits

Russo says there aren't enough leaks in education policy and its reporting.

I'd add that there aren't enough lawsuits either in response to the new layer of federal regulations and competitive grants. Somebody should have threatened to sue the Department of Education over the Race to the Top scoring for all states that propose to use the Common Core standards over the bogus "international benchmarking" in ELA. Or for that matter, over the confusion over whether or not there are "college- and career-ready" standards in English Language Arts (or are they "Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening" standards). I wish there was somebody threatening a lawsuit over the state and district's inability to send every student at Feinstein High School to a higher achieving school next year, after closing the school under state and federal rules which require it.
