In response to my post "The Injurious School Culture Enforced by
High-Stakes Testing" [Hake (2012)], "Haim" 0f the Math-Teach list
wrote:

"Would you be good enough to explain to this forum why there is an
education reform movement in the first place?"

According to David Denby (2012) in his "New Yorker" article "Public
Defender: Diane Ravitch Takes On A Movement":

a. the reform movement that Ravitch opposes is the conservative wing
of what "Haim" calls "The Education Mafia";

b. it's "supported by President Obama and his Education Secretary,
Arne Duncan; it is also championed by the Republican Party; by many
governors, mayors, and schools chancellors; and by a variety of
wealthy entrepreneurs and fund managers";

c. it's "driven by an exaggerated negative critique of the schools. .
. . that . . . is mistakenly imposing a free-market ethos of
competition on an institution that, if it is to function well,
requires cooperation, sharing, and mentoring."
