Questions About Education That Need Answers by Dr. Jay Hertzog
From Diane Ravitch’s book “Reign of Error,” she poses the following questions for consideration to all of us concerned about education:
Why today are public schools unable to afford the curriculum they once offered?
Why is the richest nation in the world unable to provide a full curriculum for all students in public schools?
Why are budget cuts in the wake of the Great Recession of 2008 falling so heavily on the public schools?
Why are states willing to spend hundreds of millions on testing and test preparation materials even as they cut back on teachers of the arts and foreign languages and on librarians and counselors?
Food for thought
