Predictions For 2007

Scott Elliott asks -- but doesn't answer -- several questions about national education trends in his post Education predictions for 2007? so I guess I'll have to answer for him: Largely intact. An afterthought. Not really.

For the record, I came up with some predictions for 2006, a few of which came true (national testing is still going nowhere, school-based bans are still going strong, TV shows are still portraying education better than most journalists, and most blogs like this one are still lame). The others -- about states not bothering to apply for the growth model and Hurrican vouchers leading to a proliferation of other voucher intiatives -- didn't exactly pan out.
