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