A Bob and Bob show on public radio

Last week, Council Executive Director Bob Reidy and I were guests on Albany public radio’s “Vox Pop” call-in show.

Our scheduled topics were the federal Race to the Top initiative and the Education Department’s recent change in cut scores for the grade 3 through 8 assessments.

Several of the callers were teachers expressing opinions about “teaching to the test” and merit pay plans to link compensation and student performance.

You can listen to the hour-long show here.

Host Alan Chartock told us the program is heard in six states.
