Got any ideas about education for the next president?

It’s all about accountability, says Denver English teacher Ben Jackson. But West Virginia state superintendent Steven Paine thinks that though accountability is important, “it’s time for us to look at measuring student achievement beyond a standardized test.”

Forget all the measurement, renowned educator Deborah Meier says. She thinks it’s time to revisit our nation’s goals in providing public education and inquire “what it was that we figured we all agreed on that was important and couldn’t be learned easily in any other way except formally.”

These are just a few pieces of Education Advice for the New President gathered in the form of podcasts and written comments as part of an on-going project produced by Learning Matters.
