It’s seldom we endorse a point of view, but we were struck by how the article “New Study Suggests Education Reformers are the Ones Failing to Learn,” from The Nonprofit Quarterly, reflects what we’ve observed in education policy for more than ten years.

Of interest to all concerned about the future of American education should be a new study done by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), “Low Performing Students: Why They Fall Behind and How To Help Them Succeed,” which can provide the basis for moving beyond a clash of educational philosophy to a more fact-based foundation for effective policymaking.
