Ron French’s article on Betsy Devos

Ron French created a very detailed curation about Betsy Devos’s interview on 60 Minutes. He uses multiple sources to back up the evidence he found about Michigan schools. His efforts and research make it be known that Michigan schools need improvement.

Just a few months before, Bridge MI released an article on January 28 titled “Michigan’s K-12 performance dropping at an alarming rate.” This article by Ted Roelofs uses statistics from the U.S. Census and other databases to provide access to the evidence used.

An outside source that French used is Brookings. This website uses hyperlinks in a different way. Brookings cite their evidence at the end of each sentence instead of including it directly in the article. This may be confusing to first time users and they may not want extended information.

The way that French introduces his evidence is by continuing his sentences as if the hyperlink was not there. However, the hyperlinks explain exactly what one should expect to find when clicking.
