. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966
And they wonder how Wall Street pulled off its latest heist - if this ed policy continues - just think of the next heist the BRT will be able to pull off - no wonder they love testing so much -- its clearly in their best interests to dumb down the population as much as possible. The question is, when will "the people" stand up, organize and tell the oligarch-testocrats to go F themselves. Hmmmm..how much longer will it take for this house of cards to crumble - only Jon Stewart can save us - by shining a spotlight on this - what the hell is he waiting for? Perhaps he'll catch on one of these days - he and Colbert appear to be the last bastion of any sense of straight talk on the boob tube - oh, perhaps Madow or Oberman will take up this issue - can't understand how it continues to go under the radar. It would be a good topic for Stewart's new segment "What the F*%#K!!"Thanks for sharing.
This is just what I needed today. This week in Seattle, we're the proud recipients of new Broad and Gates money aimed at... more testing.
