Recommended: WG on reforming education

October 24, 2010 Uncategorized 0

I highly recommend WG’s recent post, “Dysfunctional Middle Schools.”  WG is a former teacher and co-founder of The Interlocking Curriculum, a Quaker school in the late 1970s.  When he talks about how to establish a culture of respect in schools, he speaks from his own experience.  The IC did indeed develop such a culture.  WG’s ideas on how to reform middle school (and education generally) are good ones, and deserve a wider hearing.  Unfortunately, they aren’t likely to get one from the educational establishment, which seems to be as allergic to real reform as any other venerable institution.
