Literacy is a right of all people. “The great object to be accomplished in reading as a rhetorical exercise is, to convey to the hearer, fully and clearly, the ideas and feelings of the writer.” McGuffey, William Holmes

Educating for Democracy: Educational Colonialism
Joel, this is more bad news from the celebrated clueless reformer set. Life on planet reform seems to lack any basis in fact or common sense. The only thing that we will be able to measure in the next few years is profit and loss. The great education apathy is based on the idea that we can find an easy solution. TRUTH is it will take many years of hard work on the part of parents, teachers, students, government, and society to make schools and society efficacious for all. We all want to have an easy solution or a straw-man to blame. Korea has "Education Fever" America has "Education Reform"
