(The following was written sometime in 2011 and just sat in my drafts until today. It’s still sort of relevant if you mentally inject “Common Core.” Not sure where I was going with the title.)
I admit to being conflicted and confused about school reform, charters, vouchers, standardized tests, teacher compensation, a national curriculum and the myriad of other untested and unproven education fixes floating around D.C. and the blogsphere. Luckily no one’s in charge, yet, to force us all to move in lock step in any one unproven direction. Hopefully no one person or group will ever be in charge and we will continue to find our own better way.
