Quotes of the day

The case of Honduras presents a remarkable example of Obama's foreign policy. It is a foreign policy that provides a continuing lesson in how to alienate friends and amuse enemies.--Scott Johnson

So you see, education policy reform is very simple. All we have to do is revamp the pedagogy, throw out the textbooks, re-write the tests, fire all the teachers, and draw up a new curriculum. This ... is a microcosm of what frustrates me about education policy. Every college grad considers him or herself an education expert because they've spent at least 16 years in school, and our education system is a bottomless PEZ dispenser of issues. The result is something quite cacophonous.--Derek Thompson
