The fallacy of test-driven school reform


Commentary

John Thompson
There is a lot wrong with the Oklahoma City Public Schools, but the blame game is not a solution. OKCPS, largely made up of low-income students (88 percent), earned a D in the Oklahoma Department of Education A-F school grading system. But the state also earned a D for improving outcomes for low-performing students. To serve our children and help those who struggle, we must stop blaming individuals and address systemic problems that have stymied all urban school systems.
