The Myth Behind Public School Failure

image

Dean Paton

Until about 1980, America’s public schoolteachers were iconic everyday heroes painted with a kind of Norman Rockwell patina—generally respected because they helped most kids learn to read, write and successfully join society. Such teachers made possible at least the idea of a vibrant democracy.

Since then, what a turnaround: We’re now told, relentlessly, that bad-apple schoolteachers have wrecked K-12 education; that their unions…

Selling Development

A week ago, a good friend of mine who attends Harvard Law School asked me: “Why do development?” Why do development? Seriously?? To me, the question seemed impertinent.

But, as I’ve come to realize over the past two years, this automatic, irrational reaction doesn’t do anyone any good. In this current political climate, those who are passionate about development should…

Do community-based organizations have an image problem?

I give lots of thought to what makes community-based organizations the lowest common denominator in development aid. Readers of how-matters.org may already be familiar with previous arguments I’ve offered for the increased inclusion of and investment in community-based organizations (CBOs). As an ardent proponent of CBOs’ comparative advantages, I believe they have a better chance of being driven by “the…
