Talking About Atlanta

Talking About Atlanta

This from last night is one of the smarter cable news segments you'll see on education, despite the super-heated topic (cheating in Atlanta). Though host Chris Hayes is a little over-excited for my taste (it's the first day of his primetime show), he and his panelists explore several sides of the issue (questions about the indictment, benefits and drawbacks of testing) and excludes an abundance of obvious cheap shots for or against teachers, testing, and accountability that most such segments highlight. Actually, there are two segments -- watch them both.
