A reader commented:

There have been many times in history when the evidence and discoveries by researchers and scientists (such as Galileo and Darwin) was suppressed by those in power. This is one of those times.  

The peer-reviewed unbiased research in biology, neuroscience, education, and social science corroborates a humanistic, child-centered, constructive approach to how we raise and educate our children.  It’s amazing how the biological research into the workings of the brain supports the research from education and social science.  Many of us know that there is already evidence that tells us to do the opposite of what the laws and policies require.  

Someday people will look back and ask, “How could a society have done that to their children when they knew better?”

Diane Ravitch’s blog will be there, in archive, to tell the future how it happened. Thank you Diane.
