The Comeback of Blab Schools

Lucas Morel elaborates on the theme he blogged on below ("Willing Hearts in Harlem") in this good essay. Isn’t it about time that the catastrophe that is K-12 education for many so called minority students be revealed for what it is? Morel talks about the "cram schools" (or what Lincoln called "blab schools’): "While others have been blathering about finding new ways to teach America’s untouchables—the so-called unteachable kids of the inner city—more and more parents have decided not to wait for the next ’solution’ by the education ’experts.’ They are realizing that the most precious gift they can give their children is a proper education, and that this responsibility begins at home with their own decision to ensure that real learning actually take place." Read the whole thing.
