A Blunt Popularity Measure?

There’s nothing scientific about the following claim, but the top two “most e-mailed” articles on the NYTimes online right now are both about education reform (I just blogged about them).  I’ll draw no conclusions, but it’s hard to avoid noticing that the reform discussion continues to gather steam in the mainstream.

    I noticed the same thing, especially since “Building a Better Teacher” is 10 pages–that says something if people are willing to read something that long (though of course, just because people are emailing it doesn’t mean they have read it). It also seems to somewhat contradict this Brookings paper: http://www.brookings.edu/reports/2009/1202_education_news_west.aspx.
