WEEKEND QUOTABLES



It's war
Mr. President. There's A War Going On In This Country... A War Being Waged By Some Of The Wealthiest And Most Powerful People against the working families of the United States of America.  (Sen. Bernie Sanders)
From the 'barricades'
First, it is wrong to assert that students' poverty and family circumstances severely limit their educational potential... Public education is a service-delivery challenge, and it must be operated as such. (Joel Klein--"What I learned at the Education Barricades")
You don't know me
“Give me a chance,” New York's new chancellor, Cathie Black said in the interview, on WABC-TV. “Don’t judge someone that you haven’t even met.”
I hope Black will follow her own advice when it comes to teacher and school evaluation. Look beyond test scores as the sole criteria please, Ms. Black.

  1. Black's administrative meetings at Tweed should be videotaped so her "effectiveness" can be scored.

  4. Senator Sanders, doesn't a war require both sides to be fighting? This seems like a massacre to me.
