Quote of the Day: Education Policy

"Today, education reformers increasingly view our children as fodder for the engines
of economic productivity. Leaders of global corporations, education "experts," and
political leaders, having lost sight of the true ends of education, promote uniformity
of curricula across the nation, validated by high-stakes testing. The time has long
passed for us to recognize that these would-be emperors of the mind … wear no clothes."

- Lenore Ealy, "Is Education Policy Economic Policy"
