http://www.wnyc.org/story/32043-new-math-test-scores/#comment99281Interesting results, but how have they interpreted the results in respect that the universe of students taking the test from prior years has changed? Due to the economic situation, I am guessing that there are more children now in the public school system who once were in the private school system. This could skew the results. If these students are taken out of the analysis, are the results similar? How many children are estimated to be in the public system today, who moved from the private sector? How has this affected the public system? I think this would be an interesting subject to explore

http://www.wnyc.org/story/32043-new-math-test-scores/#comment99282This sounds like an attack on Bloomberg, not an unbiased analysis.
The answer is parents who care, all the tests, programs and PHD's sitting in meetings will never change that. My parents had 8th grade educations, but they cared. We all did well in school.
