Fact Check

Andre Perry (3)



It’s almost comical how people outside of New Orleans – including the folks who pay him to write his weekly column in the Hechinger Report – can take Andre Perry seriously, when so many people here in the Big Easy don’t.

Why? Because the things he says and writes are all provocation and no substance. They’re frequently shot-through with factual errors. They are mind-numbingly repetitive. And, to top it all off, they frequently don’t make any sense (although his editors seem to give him a pass when it comes to logical coherence).

Hit the link below to see these problems in action in his latest piece in the Hechinger Report:

Pete became involved in education reform as a 2002 Teach For America corps member in New Orleans Public Schools and has worked in various capacities at Teach For America, KIPP, TNTP, and the Recovery School District. As a consultant, he developed teacher evaluation systems and served as a strategic advisor to school district leaders in Cleveland, Nashville, Chattanooga, and Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. He now writes about education policy and politics and lives in New Orleans.

Would it not have been more professional to actually point out the alleged errors in Mr. Perry’s report? I doubt anyone should take your criticism seriously when you haven’t stated anything that supports your contradictory stance to Mr. Perry’s article. Without, it’s nothing more than propaganda. IJS
