    We love a sentence only partially because of what it means, but even more for the manner and intensity through which it makes its meaning vivid.

  • Todd shared from Why School?: How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere (Kindle Single) by Will Richardson
    We have to beat Finland, right? These “corporate reformers” consistently cite the relatively low performance of U.S. students on international tests as a way to drum up support for reform. (What they don’t tell you, by the way, is that if we just looked at test results from U.S. kids living in high-income homes, we would be first in the world in just about every category. Our scores reflect our very deep issues with poverty, not inherent problems with schools.)
