Description: In his opening post, Brandenburg wrote, "I have been doing some research on educational progress (or lack thereof) in the Washington, DC school system before and after the reign of our media-darling school Chancellor, Michelle Rhee...." The retired high school teacher's math posts, which date back to November, 2009, have included "The Rest of the 2011 Mathematics Baccalaureat exam," "Real Data on NAEP scores in DC over the past 20 years," "More Disparities Between 10th Grade DC-CAS and DCPS Algebra One ‘Standards,’" "The 2010 DCPS VAM Mathematica Final Report, Leaked," "The Rhee Miracle Examined Again – By Cohort," "Inequality, Segregation and Education in America vs. the World," "Why Does EVERYBODY need to learn Advanced Algebra?" and "Why is the moon so high in the sky in winter?"
