OBSERVATION OF THE DAY. Diane Ravitch questions the current course of K-12 reform.
On our present course, we are disrupting communities, dumbing down our schools, giving students false reports of their progress, and creating a private sector that will undermine public education without improving it. Most significantly, we are not producing a generation of students who are more knowledgable, and better prepared for the responsibilities of citizenship. That is why I changed my mind about the current direction of school reform.
I'm on spring break and don't intend to comment at length. Go, read, understand.
