It's Not Just State Performance & AYP That Are Overstated

The Washington Post reports that -- much like big city school districts, state education agencies and the USDE under Margaret Spellings, NBC is wildly overstating its performance: NBC's "Ratings Doping" (via DeadSpin).

"The Washington Post explains today that the ratings NBC is releasing are mostly bullocks. Writer Lisa de Moraes calls it "ratings doping," and it involves -- we think, though this Nielsen business is awfully confusing -- picking and choosing which half hour segments are reported to the Neilsens. And NBC making their ratings look better than they actually are. Which is rather scary."
