Schools 'Where Everybody Knows Your Name'

Pondiscio: I would argue that the most important thing for educators to get right is school tone and culture.

If Not College, Then What?

Pondiscio: You don't like "college prep," but how do you feel about "work prep?" About independence prep?

Preparing Kids for More Than College

Meier: I personally hate the term "college prep." I want our students to be prepped for the real world, and I hope colleges do, too. On the whole, the thing that best helped us get kids into colleges were the kids themselves. They were unusually well prepared to carry on a conversation with adults in a thoughtful and lively way.

A Standard Curriculum Won't Erase Gaps

Deborah Meier: How a mandated national curriculum or privatization promotes accountability or equality is a mystery to both Diane and myself.

The Progressive Case for a Common Curriculum

Do you believe we can morally and lawfully make knowledge demands, however trivial, of one class of citizens but not another?

In 'The Spirit of Liberty'

It's probably easier to teach about liberty than democracy. The former is perhaps "natural" to the human species.
