(2003, August 19). Comments o n Weiner, Resnick and scientific debate. Education Policy Analysis Archives, 11 (29). Retrieved [date] from a/v11n29/.AbstractLois Weiner (2003) and Lauren Resnick (2003) have a dvanced substantially different views of the success of the reforms undertaken by Community School District Two (CSD2) in New York city. Weiner's position vis a vis District Two has probably conferred a greater measure of objectivity to her views. Criticisms of scholarly work, even when sharply worded, are neither personal nor unsci entific; indeed they are quite common in all the sciences. Lois Weiner, Lauren Resnick, and the Archives are to be commended for initiating a public peer-reviewed debate on the studies used t o support what is unfortunately called "reform" education, fuzzy math and whole lan guage reading. As is becoming clear nationally, statistics about educational prog rams are not always what they seem. The scientific method includes the axiom that adversarial scrutiny of data is the only path to correct conclusions. Researchers c hallenging fuzzy math have often been denied access to education journals and their criticisms have gone unanswered and unrecognized in the education commun ity (See the web site for instances of t his.) Another axiom of scientific objectivity is that the most reliable evidence for a


2 of 4 particular reform is not likely to be from the prop onents of that reform. In medical practice, for example, a new procedure must be test ed in clinical trials by researchers other than those who propose it before it is accepted. Precisely because Weiner was not involved in implementing the District 2 reforms, her analysis of the results is less likely to be biased though it might be biased for other reasons.Anyone who actually lived in District 2 and had chi ldren in District 2 schools during the period in question—as I did—would be aware of t he huge shift in demographics that Weiner pointed out. For one thing, at least tw o new schools serving well the "well-to-do" (PS 234 and PS 98/IS 89) began operati ons. Moreover, a number of magnet schools (Lab, Salk, School of the Future, et c.) began drawing top students from throughout the city. It would have been more i nformative to present results from individual schools whose student populations w ere more stable. Having seen such data but not having access to them now, I do n ot recall that it was nearly as positive as the overall numbers quoted by Resnick.It is hard to agree with Resnick's complaints about the tone of Weiner's article. Criticism of the structure of a scientific study is not a personal attack on the ethics of the researchers. Scientific journals that engage in debate, such as Physical Review Letters regularly use such language. The fact that scient ific opinions are colored by personal factors does not make them wron g. Having interacted with officials of District 2 over the years, I can testi fy that it is difficult to describe their actions dispassionately. Weiner has done remarkably well, given her conclusions.ReferenceResnick, L. B. (2003, August 7). Reforms, research and variability: A reply to Lois Weiner.

He received an MA in Poli tical Science and German Literature at the Freie Universitt Berlin (1978) and a Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University (1996). As a researcher, he explores how educationa l policies form institutional structures that in turn shape teaching and learning in schools He is particularly interested in the tension between student achievement and citizenship accountability and democratization. He examined these relationships, f irst, in eastern German schools that underwent fundamental changes after the collapse of socialism. A number of articles and a book Educational Change and Social Transformation (Falmer 1996), published with Hans Weiler and Elisabeth Fuhrmann, resulted from t his work. He co-authored (with Bruno Losito, CEDE, Italy) The Teaching of Civic Education, a chapter in the IEA Report on Civic Education (IEA 2001) that looks at the con ditions of Civic Education teaching in 28 countries. In recent years, Dr. Mintrop has turn ed to the issue of school accountability and the "fixing" of "failing schools." This work ha s so far produced a number of articles and book chapters on the fate of school improvement in schools on probation in the states of Maryland and Kentucky. Dr. Mintrop’s work has been supported by the U.S. Department of Education, the Pew Charitable Trust, the Spencer Foundation, and the August Thyssen Foundation, Germany. He was recently awarded a Carnegie Corporation scholarship to study school accountability systems comparatively in the United States and Germany. He is also currently undertaking a study o f the California school accountability system.

1 of 1 editorial board Craig HowleyAppalachian Collaborative Center for Learning,Assessment, and Instruction in Mathematics Co-Director, Research InitiativeOhio University Phone: 740-593-9869 Email: Homepage:'ve written about, studied, and lived in rural pla ces. We now farm 80 acres in Appalachian Ohio, wherewe raise a small variety of crops and animals. Cult ure, politics, economics, and history concern me. I wish schools were better at promoting “the life of the mind” (whatever that is; finding out is part of the adventure) among eve ryone. And I think there are reasons they don't, but these reasons constitute more than just inattention or foolishness. Culture, politics, economics, and history suggest reasons. L iterature (fiction) may be a much better guide to true education in rural places than the so rts of poor studies we educationists sponsor. Check out Wallace Stegner's Second Growth (circa 1947) or Annie Proulx's The Shipping News (1993) and even E.M. Forster's Howards End (1910). These folks have preserved something we have tried desperately to ab andon, but can't actually escape. The wonder is that, though these books (and many mo re) treat the dilemmas of rural life, they also deal with the idea of a true education mo re universally. Now, that's fun because it's not easy. In particular, novels don't lend the mselves to translations as cookbooks. Teaching well is the most difficult work in the wor ld. We make a great mistake with attempts to make it easy or happy. Happiness is not a worthy aim for education, nor is getting and holding a good job.
