Ripping a New One in Education Secretary Arne Duncan

I have not paid much attention to Secretary Duncan, but a recent post over at Big Orange rips him quite severely.  I hadn't realized that Race to the Top was a brainchild of his, but I am in principle opposed to all programs that purport to improve public education by applying carrot/stick methodologies according to performance metrics based on standardized testing.

Anyhow, the above-referenced link, from a high-school Biology teacher in Oklahoma, frames the problem of education reform in stark yet eloquent terms. Go read it.
