And Now a Word from a RF Godfather …

Last week, the education reform community was abuzz with discussion on IES’ interim report on Reading First’s effectiveness.  There’s been a great deal of good talk on the topic, particularly from Mike Petrilli and the folks over at Fordham Foundation.

Today, we’ve got a great interview on Educationnews.org with Reid Lyon.  If you’re bothering to read anything on RF, then you have to know who Reid is.  I won’t try to summarize the interview, for I couldn’t do it justice.  Instead, I’ll just forward the link.

Be warned, it is long.  But it is chock full of good information and good opinion.  Definitely worth the read.  And it begs the question — what is the other $140 million set aside for RF assessment/evaluation being used for?
