PAR commentary short on data, long on opinion

The Public Affairs Research Council has weighed in to support the package of school board reforms proposed by Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek.

As LFT President Steve Monaghan points out in this article by Times-Picayune reporter Ed Anderson, the PAR commentary is uncharacteristically short on data, but long on opinion. Says Steve, it "oversimplifies complex issues and dismisses honest debate as simply turf battles. Usually one can count on PAR to back their recommendations with research."
