I am Educator, Hear Me Roar! An Interview with John Kuhn

via Living in Dialogue: Education Week Teacher

Teacher/Blogger Anthony Cody interviews John Kuhn, superintendent of Perrin-Whitt CISD, after his barnstorming speech at a Save Texas Schools rally in Austin (featured below).

My favorite quote:

The greater good is dying on the floor while [my state elected officials] preen and play to their fan clubs. (They use the word “constituents” because it sounds more grown up than “fan clubs.”) It’s all very sad to me, because historically we did education right, and now American education is writhing in hideous deformity on the experimenters’ table while other countries do it right. And it’s a vicious cycle: the more they mess things up, the more eagerly they then come at us with more clumsy surgeries to “fix” us.
