Marion Brady on Truthout: "Reform: An Ignored Problem, and a Proposal"

Marion Brady on Truthout: An Ignored Problem, and a Proposal"

"Facts must be faced. First, the traditional
curriculum is a confused, incoherent, disorganized mess. Second,
standards and tests do nothing whatsoever to improve it. Third, it can't
be fixed by "top down" mandates from Congress, state legislatures, or
district offices. The fix will have to come "bottom up" and spread from
school to school, propelled by its success with average teachers working
in ordinary classrooms with learners of all ability levels."

Hi Cindy,
I posted this for you--
Is this the way you'd like things to look?
Trouble is, I did do that thing Skip suggested of "stripping out the html code after clicking on html." That's what turned it white. I'll have to test it the other way (without doing that), but I could see the part I copied wanted to be in blue.
Anyhow, you could put up a small discussion and a link, post that, and then just do your writing about it in a comment. That would probably be easiest.
