This space explores issues in public education policy, and it advocates for a commitment to and a re-examination of the democratic purposes of schools. If there is some urgency in the message, it is due to the current reform efforts that are based on a radical re-invention of education, now spearheaded by a psychometric blitzkrieg of "metastasizing testing" aimed at dismantling a public education system that took almost 200 years to build.

Countering Conservative Propaganda
What's the plural of "smackdown?" Smackdowns or smacksdown? Anyway, there are three of them here on the latest propaganda by Jay "Walmart Scholar" Greene, Louisa "In Your Eye" Moats, and Andrew "Sounds French to Me" LeFevre. Enjoy.
