Comparing Coverage Of The "Curriculum Narrowing" Report

Lots of folks take a swipe at reporting this year's version of the CEP survey of school districts about the impacts of NCLB on instruction. The AP version of the story is pretty cut and dried (No Child law has downside, survey finds). In contrast, the NYT spends a lot of time trying to explain why the percentage of districts decreased so much from last year -- a change the report authors attribute to a wording change in the survey (Focus on 2 R’s Cuts Time for the Rest, Report Says). Remember, it was the Times that heralded last year's findings. Over at the Post, it's most a roundup of reactions to the shift in instructional priorities-- Manhattan Institute and EdTrust come in for the focus on reading and math, Andy "Doughnut" Rotherham comes out against (English, Math Time Up in 'No Child' Era).
