The Red Pencil" is another excellent example of Ted Sizer's incisive, no BS approach to what we as a county need to do if we are to reform education. The intellectual architect of the Coalition of Essential Schools is as clear as ever about the need to understand the challenges facing education. They are: a deep and persistent misunderstanding of the nature of teaching and learning; concerns about the nature of authority and who wields power and last how America's "fetishizing of order" creates systems that make managing the work of education easier while diminishing the actual education that takes place within the school.
