Quotation Of The Day: Educational Gurus Edition

Richard Feynman takes a look at gurus:
If your guru fails to meet these minimal qualifications, put away your wallet. They're wasting your time:
  • Has your guru taught in a real classroom the past three years?
  • Does your guru allow his research to be peer reviewed?
  • Does your guru grasp statistics?
  • Is your guru free from the financial interests of a billionaire?
Bye Wong!
See you later Marzano!
Hasta la vista Duncan!
Arrivederci, Gardner!
If we're even going to pretend we're a profession, we need to stop buying snake oil.
HT: John T. Spencer
