What is Retort?

An (Intentionally) Brief Overview

What is Retort?

A new initiative of mine where I’m serving up brief reactions, additions, refutations, corrections, etc., on education reform-related news.

I’ll still be writing longer-form, more in-depth pieces on my main site, PE+CO, but wanted a place where I could add my quick two cents on the latest developments and controversies in the education reform debate.

That’s Retort in a nutshell. I hope you’ll follow along.
