Weak Sauce

There's a spate of what seems to me like self-righteous, intellectually dishonest writing about education coming out in the last few days.  Not to worry, however.  I put a quick stop to it.  First, the Washington Post's Paul Farhi takes aim at mainstream education journalism recently in the American Journalism Review, describing the coverage as credulous and simplistic (Flunking the Test) .  Funny, that's just how I'd describe his piece (Flunking Paul Farhi's Education Journalism Critique).  Meanwhile, in Dissent, Joanne Barkan slams reformers for being rich, well-educated and white  (Hired Guns).  Unfortunately, so is she (Finger-Wagging From A Cape Cod Vacation Home).  Next.
