The dangers of a high-regulation approach to school choice

Test scores are not strong indicators of school quality, Dr. Jay Greene said recently at OCPA, sounding for all the world like an #OklaEd blogger. Even when they’re value-added measures, they are surprisingly weakly connected to successful outcomes in later life. After all, test scores only partially capture the many things schools do (such as teach other subjects and untested material, impart values, and so on).
