Linda Darling-Hammond


Ok, ok, I'm convinced. You will be as well after you read this brief essay by Alfie Kohn. I don't know that she's the best choice ever, but she's the best choice being discussed so far. As Kohn says, "Imagine--an educator running the Education Department."

If you agree, then sign the petition he links to because those other choices would not do us any good right now.

I signed the petition. I've had the pleasure of seeing her speak two times. She believes in teacher quality and holding students accountable. However, she also recognizes that one size does not fit all.
