Tom Flanagan might have a point?

October 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Tom Flanagan is often at the top of the right wing crank list. However, he makes a decent case for some level of competition in education, based on the Alberta experience. I have two quibbles – competition works for families who are relatively decent advocates for their children. For children in the underclass, is the same thing true? Further, I have no problem with some kind of accountability, but we should be using measures that are far more sophisticated than “multiple choice” questions. Evaluation should be somewhat sophisticated.
