Quoted

Peter Cunningham on Accountability

Published

on

“The anti-reform arguments for more education funding and less accountability just don’t add up. Their argument about poverty is self-defeating: If poverty’s the real problem, why spend more on education? And their argument that we need more funding even though teachers can only do so much feeds a false narrative that undermines the status and value of the profession.” – Education Post (4/22/16)

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.
