The NYT is touting Turnaround for Children’s school impact.

It’s had an impact, alright.

The snooze-paper of record apparently missed the drop in test scores in just about every school that Turnaround has gotten its paws into.

“… in Turnaround partner schools, more than 90 percent of students with behavioral needs get connected to appropriate services, typically within three weeks,’ the NYT’s David Bornstein wrote.

Hah! Sounds nice but in reality it’s all puffery.

That’s what Pam Cantor likes – inflatables – to headline on Turnaround’s website:

  1. In consideration of the budget crisis, I would recommend that Newark Public Schools terminate all contracts with
    Turnaround for Children.
