It has probably happened to EVERYONE in education. They have read a memo from on-high, they have observed a classroom practice, they have overheard a conversation, they have been lectured to by their principal or superintendent, they have read something in the newspaper.... and a huge red flag unfurled, buzzers  began sounding, and a voice started booming in their head: well, that's just nuts.

 This is what I call the crooked-house epiphany. You look over a fence and see people building a preposterous house that nobody could live in, that nobody could actually want to build, but there these guys are building it; and when you tell them that they are building a crooked house, they sneer at you: "We are the experts. Beat it."

 This is the image that runs through a somewhat personal and literary article called "K-12 Education is a Crooked House." It explains why the field of education is quite dysfunctional and what we have to do to fix it.
