The Center for Michigan has one. So does the governor and legislature. Even the Oxford Foundation has one. What is it? A plan for educational reform, and it seems that everyone, with the exception of the educational community, has one. It seems they would rather simply stand on the sidelines and carp about ideas being advanced.
Earlier this week, there was yet another conference on educational reform hosted by The Center for Michigan. They are to be commended for putting additional ideas on the table with a new education reform report and for hosting The PUBLIC'S Agenda for Public Education. Yet, "education reform" is beginning to feel like the peace process in the Middle East.
