  1. Larry –

    With respect to your first prediction for 2012 picked up in the Washington Post today, I think we will continue to see a lack of courage when it comes to education reform discussions. Advocates seem to fear hurting the thing they love by naming it and lapse into name calling what we don’t like as “corporate”, “corp reform”, “no excuses reform”, “ed deform”, “greEdreform”, or even the pun “Rheeform.”

    I recognize that some on the progressive left are starting to use the term “social context reform” but that seems overly broad.

    It does not matter to me what the positive things we all want are called but we’ll make better use of our time if we pick some terms and run with those.

    Right now, we seem better at coming up with names for things we hate than things we love.
