Nonpartisan Education Review

The Nonpartisan Education Review provides a forum for those interested in education issues but put off by the closed and censorial education policy groups affiliated with the political parties. We aim to make a difference by remaining non-aligned and non-partisan. Learn more about us and read the Nonpartisan Education Review® (ISSN 2150-6477), our peer-reviewed, open access electronic journal.

John's participation expands the range of our topical expertise; naturally, he will manage all submissions pertaining to school choice and system reform.

ANNOUNCING: Richard Phelps was recently named chair of the Committee on Informing Assessment Policy and Practice for the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME). "This committee exists to provide education policy makers with access to the expertise within NCME and organizationally on issues involving uses of tests in public policy. A second, but related role of the committee is to increase the visibility of NCME as a resource for policy-makers in educational assessment. This committee develops strategic policy initiatives that address educational measurement and assessment."

PUBLISHED (on demand) and CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED: School System Reform: How and Why is a Price-less Tale, by John Merrifield. This book identifies root causes of persistently disappointing classroom outcomes, identifies the policy root causes of the classroom causes of Nation at Risk, persistently low school system performance, and then lays out a strategy for identifying the key elements of a high-performing school system, and then achieving their implementation. A discussion forum for each chapter is at https://www.schoolsystemreformstudies.net.

ANNOUNCING: Critically Speaking, a podcast series hosted by Therese Markow, who writes:       " ... we separate facts from fallacies at the intersection of science and society.
"Every day we make decisions that affect our own lives, those of our children and the lives of everyone on the planet. With the enormous amount of unfiltered, anecdotal 'information' accessible from numerous public sources, wouldn't we want to make our decisions based upon solid scientific data, presented to us in terms we can understand?
"The goal of Critically Speaking is to bring you the results of sound investigations across a wide range of health and educational issues, through discussions with experts, to empower you to make the best decisions in your everyday lives."
