The New Yorker has recently opened up its archives for a limited time, as reported here. There are quite a number of insightful pieces well worth the time to read, especially the in-depth look at the Atlanta Public Schools testing scandal featuring an Oakland native and rock star teacher-turned-cheater. His story and those of the principals, superintendent and other teachers reminds us of how far or how low the ‘no excuses’ and ‘data rules all’ approach can take even the best of us.
