#3 Diane Ravitch on NCLB

These articles are simply 'must reads'; the entire piece is a highlight!  Corporate/charter school reformers and proponents have no data to support their claims that competition produces excellence in young children.  Children need nurturing in a structured, supportive environment in order to learn and grow.  Market-place principles simply don't apply to every facet of human life, and Ravitch brilliantly demonstrates how they hurt our educational system.
