Make 2011 education resolutions
| Jan 10, 2011
The beginning of the year is the time to be hopeful, to feel the surge of possibility. So in that spirit Mike Rose proposes several education resolutions that emerge from the troubling developments and bad, old habits of 2010. Here is a sampling.
1) To have more young people get an engaging and challenging education.
2) To stop the accountability train long enough to define what we mean by “achievement” and what it should mean in a democratic society.
3) To stop looking for the structural or technological magic bullet that will improve education.
