“Will Standards Save Public Education?”

I just reread a book I edited (foreword by Kozol–thanks, Jonathan) in 2000! While it’s entitled “Will Standards Save Public Education” I think it is actually about the Common Core debate more than what we used to call “standards”. Of course. they overlap. But I found, on rereading, that I agree with myself, and found the respondents interesting too: Ayers, Gary Nash, Thermstrom, Sizer… My piece is called Educating a Democracy. So, I’m still worrying about the same thing. But, believe it’s still available via Beacon, Amazon, your local bookstore if it exists, et al.

Diane, if you get around to it–read and comment. Is this an area of our agreement or disagreement, or one of those overlaps: agree and disagree.
