@teacherreality @dianeravitch "Teaching sometimes resembles a caricature of American tourists in Europe: there are only x days to see y countries, so the rental car screeches to a stop in front of a famous ruin, the family jumps out and snaps pictures, and the children are herded back into the car....What drives such teaching is the imposition of long lists of standards along with demands that students and teachers be held accountable for covering all of them, however superficially."
