@anderscj sounds a lot like the hyperbolic rhetoric we hear in today's world, no?
@anderscj I love Larry Cuban. Do you follow his blog?
@jerridkruse I read it occasionally. I am on the fence regarding Cuban. I see him often as an uber-pessimist but often right.
@jerridkruse I also think he misses quite a bit. Like the difference between schooling & education for example.
@jerridkruse I also feel he desires a return to non-institutional forms of schooling but all his work shows how it can't be done.
@jerridkruse I get very depressed reading his work.
@jerridkruse not for most, but there will always be underserved & under-represented
@anderscj sometimes I feel same as him. Overly pessimistic, but fear I'm right ;).
@anderscj thats fair. But would argue his focus is on schooling.
