We 'Choose' for Poor Children Every Day

Meier: You and I-or some other somebodies-are deciding the future of "other people's children" unless we provide ways for "them" to have a voice, a vote, and the resources to decide their own future.

Running the Wrong Race

Pondiscio: I resist the facile temptation to conflate testing with all that is wrong with American education. Testing did not destroy schooling. It revealed the rot and complacency within too many schools.

Thoughts From Detroit About Schools

Meier: Our schools are a symptom of something that affects all our institutions. It neither starts at school nor can end there.

The Hidden Curriculum

Meier: What is obvious to me about the schools that work well is that the students and their families have overcome the "us" vs. "them" pattern.
