“..the truth shall set you free.”
If you haven’t yet, check out Ronald Wolk’s editorial in EdWeek, “Why We’re Still At Risk: The Legacy of Five Faulty Assumptions.”
A refreshingly accurate summary of where we are in public education reform, how we got here, and at least one really interesting suggestion of what might help. What I like most about the article is Wolk’s direct assault on the “faulty assumptions” that have become almost gospel among those who would “fix” public education.
I’ll resist the urge just now to comment more on the article, but I expect it will generate more productive discussions than what we’ve heard recently on education reform. Hope the new USDOE leadership is paying close attention.
