A Charter Conference and More Testing Trouble in TN

The National Charter Schools Conference visited Nashville last week and discussed advancing the movement. In a post at Tennessee Education Report I write about what wasn’t discussed:

The point is this: The Tennessee ASD is hardly a success story. It’s a great story of PR spin and fun cocktail parties, but the actual results are limited, at best. And, it’s operated with quite a bit of controversy in both Memphis and Nashville. It’s never a good plan to pit one school against another in a fight for education survival. And it is certainly not clear that the ASD plan is better than the turnaround that was already occurring at Nashville’s Neely’s Bend.

I also note that the Tennessee Department of Education continues to struggle with the rollout of TNReady.
