Just a quick post to share an op-ed from yesterday’s Philadelphia Inquirer. Two educational researchers attempt to “bust” five “myths about education.”
What I like is that the list should give some pause to almost everyone. I recommend that you read the short article for details, but quickly, the five myths are: 1) schools have suffered big cutbacks; 2) more money means better schools; 3) our schools are performing terribly; 4) educational choice is a cure-all; and 5) it’s society, and not schools, that matter.
Something here to make almost everyone either happy, or mad. Enjoy.
