Apparently We're Starting to Win the Rhetorical War

Whitney Tilson via Core Knowledge Blog:

I challenge anyone to show me even one quote from one leading reformer who says that reforming the schools is all that is needed or who believes that great teachers and improved teaching methods are all that’s required to improve student performance.

Robert Pondiscio does some quick shotgun barrel fishing in the rest of the post. I would simply point out the mission statement of EEP:

The Education Equality Project is leading a civil rights movement to eliminate the racial and ethnic achievement gap in public education by working to create an effective school for every child.

If Whitney Tilson doesn't want us to point that out, we should. Maybe he paid for a focus group or something.
