Defending stupid. It’s not even better than nothing.

This is the defense of a bad idea. It is the perfect metaphor for corporate school reform.

No actual defense is provided.

“Make students take tests all the time.”

But there’s no evidence that it improves teaching and learning.

“Better idea? I’m all ears.”

“Replace public schools with charter schools.”

But there’s no evidence that it improves teaching and learning.

“Better idea? I’m all ears.”

And now there’s this:

Basically Cunningham and Duncan want to close schools to prevent gun violence.

But there is no evidence to support this.

“Better idea. I’m all ears.”

It’s not even better than nothing.

  1. Is there something about elevation to high office that causes cerebral anoxia?

    Or is brain 🧠 death 💀 just one of the qualifications for high office?

    Inquiring minds 🤔 want to know.

    1. Jon, you made me laugh yet again (you’ve posted some gems here & on Diane Ravitch’s Blog)! Thanks!
      Although…those two clowns (or fools), Arne & Peter, make me laugh…AT them.
      The Dumbkin & the not-really-so-Cunning(ham).
