I find myself wrestling with an idea that's mildly unsettling for my practice: maybe we teachers worry too much about knowledge.

For years, I've been skeptical about federal policy relating to school improvement grants requiring the use of certain school turnaround models. Recently, I visited a high school that has me checking my assumptions after seeing the success of their turnaround effort.

California has a chance to show how a state can dodge the supposedly silver bullets of weaker education reform efforts, and move towards meaningful structural changes that benefit students and schools.
