    worth listening to. Thanks.

    This passage really came out at me, for its broad resonance in education reform,  and in the culture at large:

    Testing creates a culture of isolation, a central component of cheating in fact. Learning and teaching, however, are best and necessarily communal and collaborative. In an authentic assessment environment, student work is collaborative and communal, thus cheating is eradicated without the wasted time and energy spent on dehumanizing practices such as test security.

    Isolation is at the root of an awful lot of problems in society. Many diaries could be written about this.

    T'd and R'd.

        formally trained in education, clearly serve the needs, not of children, but of oligarchs.
