Ravitch rhymes with … failed CNN anchor Campbell Brown, the Turnaround mistress who is 1/2 right 1/2 the time

Puh-leez!

The prolific ed-blogger and author Diane Ravitch has some tough talk for failed CNN anchor Campbell Brown as the latter embarks on her new “project,” a so-called online, education-reform news platform.

“As you begin your new advocacy, there are a few things you need to know,” Ravitch lectures Brown in a blog post by the former.

Ouch!

For example, “I realize that you are very concerned about the fact that 50% of our students are ‘below grade level.’ I want to make sure you understand that ‘grade level’ means ‘the median,'” Ravitch tells Brown. ‘It is the midpoint, and it doesn’t have a set meaning. There will always be 50% above grade level, and 50% below grade level. That is the definition of ‘grade level.’”

Ouch again!

Brown launched her new venture amid great fanfare, without the fan.

  1. 50% of children are above grade level.
    50% of children are below grade level.
    The percentage of children on grade level is equivalent to the null set.
