Education Quiz for the Day
School Reformers are:
1. Sincere idealists who have desperately, albeit mistakenly, seized on transforming schools as our one and only chance to make headway against rapidly growing poverty and inequality
2. Opportunists who have seen which way the wind is blowing and have decided to build careers on implementing the Reform agenda of testing and privatization ( esp. school chancellors, charter schools administrators, professors of education).
3. Politicians and media commentators who have decided that School Reform is the wave of the future because the wealthiest and most powerful people in the country all support it
3. Billionaires who spend so much money pushing the Reform program that it disguises the fact that the measures they endorse are unsupported by research and are in fact bat shit crazy
4. All of the Above
