OPEN LETTER TO ANDREAS SCHLEICHER, OECD, PARIS

Open Letter to Andrea Schleicher, OECD, Paris

The purpose of this open letter is to outline the influence of the PISA League Tables on trends in education reform.  Government programs, such as Race to the Top, use the tables to justify the need for reform on the basis of “competition”.  This letter not only outlines the dangers in using PISA scores to adjust policy on such a grand scale, but also provides suggestions as to how to minimize such dangers.

You can sign on to this letter by leaving a comment.  Be certain to include any title you have (Dr. NBCT, Professor, etc).
