PovRacers -N- SchoolRefs At Alexander Russo's Place

Alexander Russo has reignited the debate on what needs to be addressed first in education reform:
Looked at from afar, there are basically two main factions when it comes to thinking about education these days -- those who think underylying problems of poverty and race need to be addressed before significant improvements can be made in education, and those who believe that schools can get much better at helping children learn within the current reality.

Thus far, at least, it seems to me that it is the former, not the latter, that have won the hearts and minds of most educators and the public, and that all too often school reformers forget or fail to respond to the prevailing view.
And that's just for starters. Be sure to take a look at who's commenting.
Submissions for The Carnival Of Education are due by 9:00 PM (Pacific) tonight. Get entry instructions here. Visit last week's midway right here. See our latest posts, over there.
