At any given moment, there’s a limited amount of room in the general consciousness for books about education, and over the past few months a lot of that space has been occupied by Linda Perlstein’s new book, Tested. Which, as I explain in my review in this month’s Washington Monthly, is too bad.
Fair enough in terms of wishing for different apportionment of air time. Perlstein has the advantage of a mainstream (i.e., large corporate) publisher and publicist. So, Kevin (and anyone else who wishes public attention paid to other materials), why not review some recent books on accountability that are more substantive and analytical?
