So education needs reforming?
Maybe it does.
But what if something else were the issue?
I could ask: “What exercises do I need to do to lose weight?”
Suppose the answer, in part or in whole, had nothing to do with exercise?
What if your diet was a bigger factor than your exercise?
What if the way questions were framed was half the battle?
“But when serious people talk about education reform, they rarely talk about the family’s role in preparing children to succeed. That is in part because the very words “education reform” indicate that the question is “What’s wrong with our schools?” when in reality, the question might be better phrased as “Why do American kids know less than kids from Estonia and Poland?” When you ask the question differently, you look for answers in different places.”
