Are Poor Teachers to Blame?

Should we blame teachers for poor academic results by students? That’s the topic of a debate scheduled for March 16 at New York University. Rod Paige, Terry Moe, and Larry Sand will argue that we should. Teachers’ union president Randi Weingarten and others will argue against them. Details on the debate are available here.

George Leef is the the director of editorial content at the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal.
