Virginia $253,000-a-year Edwards

Prez of Education Week

What perspective is Ed Week attempting to silence?

Does Ed Week support the education-reformer view that ordinary citizens and taxpayers should not participate in the national-education bet?

Instead we should follow the long-debated, top-down assembly-line format whereby we each deal only with our individual widgets?

Select machers such as Vander Ark and Hess are allowed to pontificate at will. No balance is needed since they are in the know.
