Starting today and ending Thursday I’m moderating an online discussion on whether we should “scrap” NCLB over at the NewTalk web site.
Here is a list of participants:
Colorado State Board of Education
University of Arkansas
Hoover Institution, Stanford University
The Century Foundation
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP
Cato Institute’s Center for Educational Freedom
Economic Policy Institute
Democrats for Education Reform
Everyone is welcome to comment on the discussion, both on this site and at NewTalk.
And to get you in the mood for the discussion, here’s Elvis Costello urging us to “Let Them All Talk.”
[…] Jay P. Greene is moderating this debate. He says on his own blog, “Let them all talk.” […]
Nothing to do with this Jay but I watched Speed Racer, and got beyond wondering why Racer X had a subwoofer in the cockpit of his racecar and watched the movie for the story, pacing, editing, art, character development etc. It was actually good. I was shocked.
Christina Ricci in short shorts didn’t hurt either.
Greg agrees with you… about Speed Racer being good, that is. See https://jaypgreene.com/2008/05/26/speed-racer-is-better-than-iron-man-deal-with-it/
For the record, in case there was any ambiguity about this, Jay should not be held responsible for my heroic/suicidal stand in favor of Speed Racer.
I watched it because I didn’t believe Greg (I saw the post on Friday) but I always try to keep an open mind.
