Valid And Reliable Education Coverage?

2006_11_scantron.jpgFollowing up on his efforts to debunk the Times' Reading First story, D-Ed Reckoning takes aim at the Post's recent article on testing (Round up the anti-testing nutters). "WaPo is really giving NYT a run for its money for the goofiest education articles as of late."

Agree or not with his views on testing, it's hard to argue that the piece (by Valerie Strauss) includes an expert or researcher who has anything good to say about testing. Not that I have any idea who that would be (nominations?). But at least the story identifies FairTest appropriately. So that's progress, of sorts, I guess.
