Hey Charlie, Turn Loose my Reform!

It is interesting how the phrase “education reform” is getting hijacked. Its emergent definition is anything that sounds and looks good on the surface until the shiny and dazzling layers are removed and what remains is corporatization, privatization, and teacher bashing at the core. The true education reformers I know - those who genuinely seek to change the course of American education, work quietly in the classroom day in and day out even in the most hostile and adverse situations that have been exacerbated by No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top implementation.
