Anthony Cody has written a crisp analysis of the differences between what corporate reformers want and what supporters of public education want.
People like Anthony and me are often told to be accommodating, to be more receptive of the corporate style ideas.
But, as Anthony shows in this article, there are genuine differences.
Public education is facing an existential threat to its existence from people who support privatization.
They do this in a clever way, by talking about civil rights while advocating privatization.
They say it’s “for the children,” but somehow there are adults who seem to benefit more than the kids.
“They can’t wait,” but it’s not their life and career that is sacrificed while they impose risky schemes.
Yes, there is a dichotomy, and we cannot quietly acquiesce.
