Quotation Of The Day: Another Education Reform Edition

From this Valerie Strauss Answer Sheet post:
At the center of the modern school reform movement is the philosophy that public schools should be treated not as civic institutions but rather as corporate entities. . . .
Another central characteristic of school reform is the role of teachers: They don’t have one, at least when it comes to making decisions. Teachers have been scapegoated for many of the problems facing public schools, and their voice has been ignored in the education policy debate.
