Educational Reform in Seuss Verse

For those of you who are as sick as I am of the typical (and often not very civil) point-counter point debate over education reform.....well, as Monty Python title announced, now for something completely different.

This comes from a fabulous blog called Failing Schools, which is written by three actual teachers to combat much of the nonsense about education reform being spouted by non-educators (their tag line is "Are schools failing, or are they being failed?").  Sabrina, who is one of the three co-authors, was responding to the latest controversy over Michelle Rhee's brief control of the DC Public School system (if you are not familiar with the report that someone in the school system changed the standardized test sheets to improve student scores, you can get the full details on the scandal, dubbed "Erasuregate" or "Erase to the Top," at the RheeFirst website).  However, she decided to do her critique via hand-drawn pictures accompanied by verse in the style of Dr. Seuss!

So here it is-- Rhee the Reformer:  A Cautionary Tale.   I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
