Less Talking, More Doing

Barry Schuler @BSchuler

Public education is the biggest Fail Whale of our generation and we are all to blame. Our Federal and State governments have dropped the ball, people with financial means have fled to private schools, and Silicon Valley has not succeeded in bringing any significant technical innovation to bear. The current public dialog is filled with divisive finger pointing and circuitous debate, yet there still is no roadmap for change. We don’t have to be victims of this dysfunction. Education is an inherently local issue and we all have the power to rise up, organize and transform our schools for the 21st century.
