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.

The committee comprised 28 members, but the report included only 24 signatures. The 4 who did not go along are Alfinio Flores (U. Delaware), R. James Milgram (Stanford U.), Sandra Stotsky (U Arkansas), and Dylan Wiliam (ETS). Professor Flores declined to submit an explanation.

ANNOUNCING: Critically Speaking, a new 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."
