The Predicament of Innocents

"Stranahan's engaging
prose—and stunning student portraits—make a convincing case that the school system we've got today needs
re-thinking. Stranahan argues, with heart, for a thorough overhaul. Read only if you are open to fresh thinking and uncluttered insights."

“The consistent use of test scores to demonstrate first a “mental ability” gap and now an “achievement” gap exposes the intrinsic nature of these tests: They are built to maintain inequality, not to serve as an antidote to educational disparities.” http://www.rethinkingschools.org/archive/28_03/edit2283.shtml
