Richard Innes, staff education analyst at the Bluegrass Institute, presents a paper on pitfalls in interpreting the National Assessment of Educational Progress at the first international school choice and reform conference tomorrow.
This conference brings together education researchers from around the world who are working in the area of choice for K to 12 school systems.
A few of the topics to be discussed include:
• Digital learning developments in various countries around the world,
• Teacher union involvement in the choice issue,
• Charter school reactions to market and authorizer accountability demands,
• Impacts of an international education program in Canada,
• School choice overseas,
• Contributions and private religious schools contributions and concerns,
• Tools available from the National Center for Education Statistics, and
• Charter school performance in New Orleans.
Innes’ paper will be available following the conference, but you can get an advanced idea of what he will discuss by reading “The National Assessment of Educational Progress,” which is on line now in the freedomkentucky.org Wiki site.
