Let Them All Talk

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:

Elaine Gantz Berman Colorado State Board of Education
Jay Greene University of Arkansas
Eric Hanushek Hoover Institution, Stanford University
Richard Kahlenberg The Century Foundation
Sandy Kress Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP

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.”

  1. […] 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.

    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.

  4. Patrick says:

    I watched it because I didn’t believe Greg (I saw the post on Friday) but I always try to keep an open mind.
