Unfortunately, last night's presidential debate offered little in the way of education policy talk. It was encouraging, however, to hear both candidates identify the declining state of our public education system as an economic policy.
Education reformers these days cast their nets far and wide to try to find a solution to the current malaise in our schools. They look to Finland, or to digital learning models. Why is Montessori ignored?
Across the country, education reform advocacy organizations are proving that when strategic, focused, and unrelenting, they can change political will.
