School reform claims vrs. reality

Let us be clear. One activist teacher in a school is excellent, but is not school reform. Two activists are not school reform. One progressive principal is not school reform. Few or none of the superintendents of major school systems – and their staffs- have reformed their schools to produce equal opportunity. Reform will occur when groups of teachers work together to create a new, more democratic school system.
We need to change the system which recreates unequal opportunity in our schools.
