10417694_10152410994782830_5843550621249572751_n

It’s coming in from all directions this week. So I need your help to decide who should be responded to first on Cloaking Inequity. Here are the candidates:

There is an attack today from RedefinED on vouchers insinuating that I am a union shill and lack peer-review in my work.

The pro-choice and charter folks are trumpeting that KIPP attrition doesn’t matter.

Andre Perry  is arguing that @TeachForAmerica has “learned a lesson.”

or the Texas Comptroller who misused my quote so that I sound like a charter school lover.

Please vote below. The post with the highest vote as of 9 pm tonight will be online by Friday August 15, 2014. The next highest vote getters will be addressed in order in the following days.

Please Facebook Like, Tweet, etc below and/or reblog.

    Julian: The “Cloaking” of “Inequity” is extremely complex. Your research and other masterful academic work toward untangling the issues is a gift to us, the public. This Blog is a “public square” of sorts, for comment, i.e., the 1st Amendment. The light and sometimes heat from the public makes those with hidden or (not so hidden) financial and social/political agendas and efforts to hide, or “Cloak” difficult. Keep on keeping on!
