I’ll do something rather dangerous today, and something very unusual for a major national expert in education. I’ll tell the truth about education. It’s not a pretty story, because it’s a story of murder. Soul murder; the persistent diminution of the natural spirit of inquiry; the solemn clipping of wings; nurturing bonsai brains, preparing not for growth and creation throughout life, but sedation for the long littleness of life.
