Media: How To Make Edu-Blogging Less Boring
In How to make edu-blogging less boring, Willingham offers "a plea and a suggestion" for making education blog posts less boring, esp. on standardized testing.
As per usual, it's entirely reasonable (and will likely be ignored):
"People who are angry about the unintended social consequences of standardized testing have a legitimate point. They are not all apologists for lazy teachers or advocates of the status quo... People who insist on standardized assessments have a legitimate point. They are not all corporate stooges and teacher-haters."
