The Myth of Chinese Super Schools by Diane Ravitch | The New York Review of Books

Salem and Oregon seem to have fallen into the foolish "If you can test for success, then the more you test, the more your success" abyss, alas.

It's cargo cults everywhere you look these days, it seems -- people who never really understood the forces at work that produced the magical amounts of wealth in the first place, now madly seeking to replicate the symbols (effects) of that wealth that they confuse with its causes.

Diane Ravitch is a real gem.

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
