David Brooks Doesn't Like Diane Ravitch

David Brooks thinks Dian Ravitch has it all wrong in thinking poverty is a big problem in schools, testing doesn't help much and teachers who aren't twenty-three and part of Teach for American aren't necessarily part of the problem. I guess he doesn't read his colleague Joe Nocera much.

John Merrow, education reporter for PBS and author of The Influence of Teachers (which I have and should read) unpacks it for us here.
