Quotation Of The Day: Is School Both Too Hard And Too Easy Edition

From this Anthony Cody Eduweek post:
I also think we end up here with a far too simple concept of "easy" and "hard." I think the way we need to make school "harder" is not by increasing the number of facts that students need to memorize, or the age at which they learn math concepts. I think we need to deepen their ability to apply these concepts in meaningful ways. (emphasis in original)
