What is David Coleman’s point? Here’s another person telling us we don’t know what we’re doing and then he lets loose with the same small-minded opinions we hear from every half-baked barfly. Where is our leadership? Perhaps it is the struggle for power that causes the people who know something about education to waste their time in internecine fighting over meager spoils. Since Americans worship wealth, I guess we’re stuck with listening to the likes of Bill Gates and David Coleman. Meanwhile, classroom teachers will struggle to teach under conditions ignored by the geniuses of wealth.
