Truthiness in Education Award

Fordham Institute for Review of The State of State Standards 2006 and for Review of Trends in Charter School Authorizing

The first runner up is the Fordham Institute for two reports: "Trends in Charter School Authorizing" and "The State of State Standards 2006." In each case, Fordham authors collected data, analyzed the data, and then presented conclusions that their own data and analyses flatly contradicted.
