A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #7

*This week’s quote is dedicated to the wide array of American school “reformers.”

“Almost nothing is so disconcerting to literacy experts as biased and poorly designed original research or slanted representations of existing research used for political purposes unrelated to the betterment of teaching and learning or as leverage for imposing certain instructional, administrative or curricular requirements.”

— from “The Intelligent Design of Writing Programs” by Chris M. Anson, published in the Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Writing Program Administration
