Back to School – the new Mike Rose book

Just getting into the first chapters and this is one book that describes the problem we face with measuring success in community colleges. He addresses the policy maker tendancies I see in action regularly from those who count students making progress, create percentages, examine trends without the knowledge of the history, culture, and dailey reality of the place from which the data were collected.  This is such a huge blunder for education policymakers and it is going on as we speak in the implementation of the 2012 student success act.

More to come…
