Whoa there. Has anyone checked out this article recently on Newsweek? It's worth a read: http://www.newsweek.com/id/234590. What's even more worth reading is educator, Larry Ferlazzo's blog post in response to this article. In Larry's words: "These kinds of magazine covers and articles might help sell copies and contribute to feelings that complex problems have simple solutions, but they certainly don’t contribute anything of value to public discourse that could lead to positive change." Kudos to Larry for such a great response. What are all of your reactions/thoughts to all of this?
