What education insiders are saying online.

“Education Sector published yet another report, Frozen Assets. There is some $77 billion in money spent on parts of K–12 education that could be more profitably used, its thesis goes, but for the onerous restrictions of collective bargaining agreements. They have the wrong metaphor in their title. A far more appropriate title would be Rewarmed Hash.”

“If we lose the sense of public education in terms of advancing the idea of a public—a group of people who decide their future together—we may be losing the whole ball of wax.”

“From a lawmaker’s perspective, NCLB is as close to a perfect piece of legislation as possible in that it’s so appealing to the very voters people who will continue to reelect them to office. What voter parent can resist the law’s premise: If your child doesn’t master the required level of proficiency (for whatever reason) in reading, math, and science, it’s the school’s fault.”

“Within hours of taking the oath of office as D.C.’s mayor, [Adrien] Fenty had a bill introduced ... to take control of the district’s notoriously fractured school leadership. Of course, mayoral control doesn’t guarantee success: Just look at Detroit and Cleveland. But on the whole, it appears to help galvanize reform.”

“Perhaps the level of parental delusion is rising. According to parents, 75 percent of children are working at or above grade level and one in four take advanced or gifted classes. That sounds like the Lake Wobegon effect.”
