The Rodel Foundation's new "Lead with Five" report is "utterly without foundation," according to Arizona Republic columnist Robert Robb. In "Education report gambles big bucks on skinny data," Robb examines the report's contention that its recommendations, including increased education spending and all-day kindergarten, could double student achievement in just 10 years.

Robb questions the validity of the Rodel Foundation's claim, noting, "There's not even a clear statement about what particular measure of student achievement should reasonably be expected to double." For more analysis of the Rodel report, see Goldwater Institute senior fellow Matt Ladner's Rodel reforms are old wine.
