Winner, Winner Turkey Dinner: Secretary @ArneDuncan Wins Award!

Congratulations and condolences to Arne Duncan for winning the 2014 Educational Policy Turkey of the Year Award! Will he come by to accept the award? 🙂

The blog Cloaking Inequity seeks to illuminate popular and dominant ideologies that purport to foment equality and close the achievement gap. Often well-intentioned citizens support educational policy that claim to create a more inclusive and better quality education system— unbeknownst (or beknownst) to them— these policies magnify and hide inequality by utilizing an elegant, yet false, bureaucracy of data, research and media promotion.

For the past two years, Cloaking Inequity has held a contest for the Educational Policy Turkey of the Year Award. The past winners were discussed in the posts Teach For America: 2012 Educational Policy Turkey of the Year and Vote for 2013 Educational Policy Turkey of the Year Award

With 51% of the vote, the 2014 Educational Policy Turkey of the Year award goes to Secretary Arne Duncan. For all posts that mention Arne Duncan click here.
