A Bolder, Balanced Approach For Obama

An Oklahoma City teacher named John Thompson wrote this interesting post about which education approach Obama should take:

HeaderBold_header_650_2We have been debating whether the route to education reform is "the

Head" alone, or through "the Heart," and we think it is strange when

Obama supports both. But it isn't. The EEP wants to gamble everything on the brain, especially the parts that process numbers and fear. Bold_header_650_2The Bolder Broader Challengeshould be the better political approach because it is based on common

sense. But we progressives have failed to balance the rights of

individuals versus the welfare of the community. Obama has been making

that point with sensitivity and nuance. We educators should follow his

lead, and his balanced approach.
