Re: “Schools, Society And Snake Oil Salesmen

The only problem with this story is that it continues to equate educational success with test scores. In my experience, the low-income schools that manage to markedly improve test scores manage it by endless drilling and getting rid of everything that won't be tested. That means no time for science, music, art, learning through play, the list goes on and on. Do their test scores improve? Yes. Does the education being provided to the children improve? No. The high income schools aren't getting great test scores by getting rid of music in their schools. It's one more way that the divide widens.
