Is a New Day Dawning for Education?

Common Dreams and Valerie Strauss at The Washington Post blog are  covering today's protests.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it does it make a sound?

Most basic answer:
No, because the definition of sound is "something that you hear." No one's there to hear the tree fall, so the tree doesn't make a sound. This answer is valid as long as no details are observed technically.
