  1. One of the big ideas the author of the article supports is the elimination of for-profit schools. Apparently there is something special about education that means the profit motive has to be hidden underneath reams of paperwork.

  2. Lefties disdain the profit motive. One and all, they’re good for nothing.

  3. nailsagainsttheboard says:

    The sad case of an eminent education historian, Diane Ravitch, succumbing to the leftist ideology she once so effectively reamed in “Left Back–A Century of Failed School Reform”. The so-called “progressive” movement has been steadily dismantling public education and American society for over a hundred years. This will continue, as long as people think emotionally, rather than rationally. Another one bites the dust.
