A new blogger enters the national scene!

This blog is devoted to fairy tales and other simple legends that show the fallacies of the corporate reform movement.

This post is about Chicken Little. Remember Chicken Little? He was hit on the head and went to tell the world that the sky was falling.

There are many other great fairy tales, Dr. Seuss tales, myths, etc. to explain the current madness of “reform.”

The one that comes to mind immediately is “the emperor’s new clothes.” Just guess who the emperor is? Who will tell him the truth.

What is your favorite tale that strips bare the pretensions of those who think that testing will close the achievement gap, that privatization is the way to advance equity, and that constant battering of teachers will attract better people into teaching?
