We Need a National School Test

Thursday, September 21, 2006
We need to find better and more efficient ways to produce an educated population and close the achievement gaps in our education system. Americans do ultimately get themselves educated — at work, after school, online, in adulthood — but a lot of time and money are wasted in the process.

My eminently sensible unschooling pal Nance retorts:

But rather than resort to more of the same failed practices, how about we build on what these fellows say IS working. Americans do get themselves educated?


Let’s take all that time and effort and money we spend on a system that doesn’t work for many and give all these terrific Americans more resources to continue the good work they are already doing.
