From Ben Grey "nnovation is a beautifully romanticized notion. It brings to mind thoughts of amazing individuals like Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, and Marie Curie who so daringly defied and displaced the status quo. And therein lies the problem. - See more at: http://bengrey.com/2015/10/the-paradoxes-of-education-innovation/?utm_content=bufferb56e7&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer#sthash.WhTSKjVg.dpuf
From the Atlantic - "High-school textbooks too often gloss over the American government’s oppression of racial minorities."

Interesting read - The courses cover too much material and do so too quickly and superficially. In short, AP courses are a forced march through a preordained subject, leaving no time for a high-school teacher to take her or his students down some path of mutual interest. The AP classroom is where intellectual curiosity goes to die.
From The Atlantic - Research suggests that, in the United States, the more motivation students say they have, the better they perform on various academic assessments. But that trend doesn’t seem to apply across countries.
A good post refuting the following often cited statistic about teachers: ‘Teachers who work in a given school, and therefore teach students with similar demographic characteristics, can be responsible for increases in math and reading levels that range from a low of one-half year to a high of one and a half years of learning each academic year.’
