Education Week: Philanthropists Are Losing Interest in K-12 “Reform” Due to Lack of Results

I wonder why reform hasn’t worked. Let’s see, it has been led by rich people trying to make more money for themselves and not having a clue about education and children’s developmental needs. The Koch brothers are manufacturers, Bill Gates software designer, Waltons superstore owners, Zuckerburg software, and so on. Not a single one of them knows anything about education. They just have money.

As educators, we might as well hire plumbers to reading in our elementary schools. It is the same logic being applied by “reformers”.

UNTIL EDUCATORS HAVE A SEAT AT THE TABLE THERE WILL NOT BE ANY IMPROVEMENTS IN EDUCATION.

I would scream this from a mountain top if people would listen.
