Before you believe any spin on NAEP should (I know, I say this all of the time) go read Bruce Baker.
And Jim Horn points out that the years previous to NCLB always mysteriously disappear from the fed's charts.
Also, if anyone from Massachusetts would like to explain how we're going to "solve" the falloff in 4th grade reading scores by adopting the Common Core, as our state officials were saying yesterday, I'm all ears.
As, however, the state had already decided to adopt the Common Core two years ago, and as adoption is already underway in many districts, and as there wasn't previously much of a problem with  4th grade reading...let's say I'm going to be skeptical.
