Our inability to act

Experts, research, data, practitioners, and just plain common sense tells us that the current school reform efforts are not preparing our children to function in the dynamic global economy.  Why the hell can't we fix it?  It's clear to me that the money of the Gates, WalMart, and Broad Foundations, and the hedge fund guys who are making a killing off of the push for Charter Schools simply don't care that we're ruining the lives of millions of kids in this country... and it's a prime example of where we've either become so docile or manipulated as a society that we can't do a damn thing about it...

Excellent 2 minute video from the great Diane Ravitch on Standardized Testing -
