So you want to help the poor and disadvantaged??

This is a huge theme running through all of contemporary education.

So what is the correct strategy? What sort of education would actually provide the most help to the poor?

This debate was played out nicely in the contrasting philosophies of Antonio Gramsci and Paulo Freire. Both, we can say, are gentlemen of the Left. But their approaches to education are completely different.

 Anyone puzzling over this complex matter might find clarity in this article: "Helping the poor and disadvantaged: a tale of two Commies."

 By the way, the latest NAEP scores show that our school system is more wretched than ever. And who do you think does the worst? It's the poor and disadvantaged.

 A teacher recently sent me her assessment of Common Core: ---"In their utopian quest to level the playing field, I think they are just screwing the people at the bottom the most. Because those who have the resources are still going to find a way to make sure their children are learning what they will need to be successful."---
