Is an expert’s professional judgement phony science?
In a previous post, I had asked the question: If education “experts” had never set foot in a K-12 classroom, were they really experts? I said no.
Of all people, Jay Greene writes a blog post today that validates what I said. And he smacks down upon the Fordham Foundation, which I think will make the brothers Klonsky happy.
From Greene’s post, “Expert panels are phony science”
Education studies based on the professional judgment of experts is phony science and is usually nothing more than an exercise in political manipulation. Unfortunately, the recent “study” released by Fordham assigning grades to state standards and the national standards proposed to replace them is an example of this kind of research.
