Redefining the Narrative: African American Students Find their Path to College by Christopher Wooleyhand, Ph.D.

There is an excellent article in the Washington Post today written by Emma Brown (Traversing two D.C.s, from Dunbar High to Georgetown University). It highlights the experiences of two former Dunbar (D.C.) High School graduates and former class valedictorians. The article is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the challenges that African American students face when they venture into the world of higher education.

"Weird Al", Descriptivism, and Prescriptivism

With his new hit video Word Crimes, “Weird Al” is doing a great service for American education.

In particular, he’s attacking the non-teaching of grammar, punctuation, spelling, and everything else. He's got people talking about these important issues.

Reply to Nancy Flanagan's 'Shutting Teachers Up'

The article was in EdWeek but the first two paragraphs were posted here on 2.0, however, you could only reply to Nancy Flanagan if you subscribed to EdWeek. So here is a sample of my column on Education:

I disagree with Ravitch’s understanding. Many charter schools here in NYS are Public Charter Schools which means, primarily, that the teachers are not members of the Union. The Union (UFT) has a strange relationship to teachers and administrators in terms of its effect on…

Scams and Sabotage in Teaching

It’s a common feature throughout public school education: methods that not only don’t work but seem designed not to work.

This is so puzzling that when you first encounter the possibility, your mind rejects it. Why would people in education design methods that defeat education?

 I think New Math was a glaring example. Reform Math continues the same tradition. The Internet is full of videos of children crying because they cannot understand the…
