Video: Jon Stewart On The Atlanta Cheating Scandal

Just in case you haven’t seen this video segment on the Atlanta cheating scandal from last night’s The Daily Show, here it is… I think it’s pretty good, though it does omit two important points — it doesn’t really talk about the overall problem of focusing on test scores, and doesn’t say anything about the fact that all the defendants were people of color. I’m still adding it to The Best Commentaries On The Atlanta Test-Cheating Verdict. The Daily ShowGet More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive Share...

Video: Jon Stewart On China’s Decision To Crackdown On Puns

Jon Stewart at the Daily Show did a very funny segment this week on the Chinese government’s crackdown on the use of puns in the media.

I was struck by several things Stewart said during the interview, including: teaching is an art form teachers subjected to new offensive coordinator coming in every few years There hasn’t really been any innovation in education since John Dewey. (this is the only time I thought he was off-base) Teachers seem like one tool to get education on track, but they seem to be the only tool that ever gets yelled at…. There’s poverty, communities, but teachers are the only ones we tell, “Fix it, or you’re fired!” Education can take place if the soil is fertile.. Is school the biggest factor? It seems we’ve abandoned the model of public school in the inner city You are creating a system where the public school becomes a place for the toughest cases [and others go to charters] The...
