As this post is published, StudentsFirst head Michelle Rhee is speaking on the Morning Joe show, touting her newly-released state-policy report card. A few practical questions, and we’ll see if any journalist decides to be a journalist as opposed to a stenographer:
- Is there any research supporting the preferred policies that StudentsFirst is using as a benchmark for what they say is student-friendly?
- Has the report met the criteria I defined for such reports in February 2010?
I write this blog entry on Sunday afternoon, having no clue what Monday morning will bring. Maybe I will be surprised–maybe StudentsFirst will bring more to the show than PR. We’ll see.
