Interesting Education-Related Blog I Happened Across.  While doing some research on-line the other day, I came across this blog--School Finance 101--authored by Dr. Bruce Baker, a professor in the graduate school of Education at Rutgers University.  Looking through the blog, there are some really interesting takes on a number of education funding and policy issues, including his latest post on de-ciphering the meaning of the recent National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) and Programme for International Student Achievement (PISA) test results.  The results of these tests have caused a lot of discussion and Dr. Baker puts forward a pretty thorough statistical analysis that provides a different perspective on the results than what has generally been reported.

Here is a link to Dr. Baker's blog:

Happy Holidays to All!  I'd like to take the time to thank everyone inside and outside SEE who have offered support during 2013 and I look forward to continuing our important work in 2014.  Hope all have a safe and happy holiday season.
