Tuesday, August 5, 2008| Matt Spathas reminded me that 2008 is the 40th anniversary of George Leonard’s “Education and Ecstasy,” which called for essentially the same changes as Mr. Spathas. In the interim, many voices, in and out of academia, have called for reform. Yet all we have is the reign of terror known as high-stakes testing. That our educational apparatus works every now and then is more luck than design. We need to define what a good education is, make that definition flexible and inclusive, and make it everyone’s business to make it happen.
