She is not afraid to face the facts, the evidence, and the scientific based research studies and make a complete turn-about on the ideas in which she once firmly believed.

Wonderful Value – Free Public Education Book Critique

But I think the evidence is that testing can come much closer than Diane Ravitch admits. From my point of view this is a straw man. At-risk students and their parents seldom apply for the lotteries to enter these schools – at least not in the same numbers as more highly-motivated students. The majority of charter schools also house much fewer English language learners and special education students, two notorious drags on testing scores. With few carrots and huge sticks, she correctly asserts that testing has narrowed curriculum and made school a mind-numbing calendar of test prep for reading and math. Science, social studies, the arts and physical education have been relegated to past in some schools – those where children need the most help and getting the least. I am a former high school teacher and parent of two public elementary schoolers, so I am not an objective observer of American education, but who really is? As Ravich points out, education in America if not everywhere is critical to us all for our economy and democracy and culture – we are all stakeholders. I disagree with several of Dr Ravitch’s points, and think she somewhat glosses over key nuances within certain topics (the success of KIPP, Green Dot and other charter networks, how they’ve tried to address issues of creaming, the massive systemic reform that’s underway in New Orleans). As such, the arguments within her book should be taken for what they are – the singular world view of an individual, who while thoughtful, experienced, and well-informed about her topic, is also prone to the biases and whims we all are. While their focus, which Ravitch unrelentingly documents, has been on operational and organizational reforms (from choice and charters to testing and merit pay) they’ve been blind to what really determines whether students are learning or not: the content of what they are being taught. “It’s the Curriculum, Stupid” could be another name for this mandatory book.

So why is it that people study Spanish for years, and that they’re still not able to have even the simplest conversations? It’s simply a matter of choosing the wrong method. Many people use textbooks with artificial conversations, old words, boring content. For example, often textbooks assume you will remember a rule by just seeing three examples. So it’s not that Spanish is difficult, but that the method has been less than inspiring.
