Every once in a while, I read something that rings as true as a perfectly pitched bell or a fine piece of crystal.

Every once in a while, a clear-headed thinker assembles all the pieces of what is happening around us and puts it all together into a sensible and compelling analysis.

Here is that article that did it for me today.


It demonstrates, in persuasive detail, why the federal policy framework is failing and will continue to fail.

Why firing half the staff of low performing schools does not produce high performing schools and may make it even harder to hire a new and better staff.

The observations of the author, Arthur H. Camins, are so clear, so smart, and so on-target that I recommend this article to everyone.

It should be required reading at the U.S. Department of Education and at every editorial board in the nation.
