You may recall a post about a disillusioned reformer, Jorge Cabrera, in Bridgeport, Connecticut,who quit “the movement.”

EduShyster located him and interviewed him about his life in the movement and his reasons for leaving.

Here is her last question and his answer:

“EduShyster: Last question. Do you think it may be necessary to burn the education reform movement in order to save it?

“Cabrera: At this point I would say yes. It makes me a little sad to say that because I definitely know people in the movement who have good motives. I think the education reform movement needs to be challenged, first of all, about the definition of reform. Right now all it seems to mean is charter schools. And that’s not the solution.”
