  •  Kudos and a caveat (1+ / 0-)

    I (mostly) appreciate your description of the situation. The history most of us learned in school was an arrow, but as you dig deeper, you find that linear progress is a myth.

    The caveat is that our schools are not failing. This is yet another reactionary myth aimed at dismantling public schools. If we could fix poverty, we'd "fix" our schools. Not saying there aren't some that are in trouble. But most are doing pretty well, in spite of the standardized testing that still threatens to overtake instructional time.
