Events: Fear-Mongering Educators Dominate DC Rally
After nearly a month of debate over the validity of the Fear-Moderation Spectrum (FMS) and the fairness of public listing of individual names attached to their FMS scores, here's a revised and expanded list of who in education reform is going to this weekend's Colbert/Stewart rally on the Mall and which side of the aisle they're slated to be sitting on.
Keep The Fear Alive (Colbert FMS 50%>): Davis Guggenheim, Diane Ravitch, Arne Duncan, Michelle Rhee, Randi Weingarten, Chris Cristie, Tim Daly, Sam Chaltain (lucky just to be named), others?
Take It Down A Notch (Stewart FMS 50%<): Nick Lemann, Jack Jennings, Kati Haycock, others?
Note that seating assignments are based on a complicated statistical measure of anxiety expressed or conveyed not on particular ideology or views on particular policy solutions. No word yet on whether USDE employees are being allowed / encouraged to attend. Previous post: Assigned Seating At Daily Show / Colbert Report Rally,
