Bill,

I come to the Math Forum to learn.

I had never heard of David Berliner. This discussion prompted me to look him up. Evidently, he is one of the chief architects of our current system of public education. In its style, substance, and motivation, his crude outburst is now fully comprehensible to me. Berliner reminds me of Baghdad Bob (sometimes known as Comical Ali),

pugnaciously asserting facts even as we are surrounded by their visible and tangible refutations.
