Lists: Who's *Not* On The Forbes Reformer List?
Who are the nation's most powerful education reformers? Most of the folks on the list Forbes published at the recommendation of Wendy Kopp are predictable and/or self-serving (ie, leaders of organizations that Kopp created, supports, or who are TFA alums). Not surprisingly, Diane Ravitch, Linda Darling-Hammond, Randi Weingarten, and Steve Brill are not on the list. But then again neither are a handful of folks who might have expected to be there: Princeton classmate John Schnur, TFA alums Michelle Rhee and John White, or TFA enthusiasts Whitney Tilson and Andy Rotherham. Most interesting picks, in my opinion? Milwaukee's Howard Fuller, a longtime voucher advocate, and Anna Ponce of the LA charter school Camino Nuevo (pictured).
