Leonie Haimson on CNN this morning

Carol Costello interviewing me today on CNN's American Morning.  Here's an accompanying article from the CNN blog.

After the show, I looked up Forest Hill HS; only 38% of their graduates are college ready, meaning they will need remediation.  I'm sure that even this relatively successful school could do better by its students if it provided them with smaller classes.

Thank you, Ms. Haimson, for being tenacious in the face of shallow journalism repeating the "teacher quality" mantra. What the interviewer failed to research was the fact that barely 30% of Forest Hills High School graduates are college ready. She should have done her homework.
