Richard Elmore’s Blistering Assessment of Institutional Schooling

HGSE professor, Richard Elmore, goes in on institutional schooling:

I no longer believe in the institutional structure of public schooling anymore. I view my work as palliative care for a dying institution.

Also:

…. the modal classroom in this country is designed, point for point, to be the exact opposite about what we are learning about how humans develop ….

The whole thing is something to behold. Only eight minutes.
