Media: "Futures Of School Reform" Blog Looks Like The Past

This is the *future* of school reform?  I gotta say it sorta looks like the past (and don't think Rick Hess really needs yet another outlet for his wisdom).  Then again I'm no spring chicken myself and have long called for more folks who actually know what they're talking about to weigh in on education issues being discussed online.  So here's to the olds -- welcome! -- let me know if they say anything interesting.  (The Futures of School Reform).

It is also funny because I was pitching blogging to two of those guys like, seven years ago, and they weren't very interested.

Where is Sir Robinson in this collage?

We need something much different from the past in education reform. It has been stated by Einstein that "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

New changes must come with new ideas and new people. Re-form--to build a new. We are plugging away at new ideas, concepts and tools at lifeskoolz.com. Our students need new engaging formats and they need to be listened too.

Anyone asking students what they need to be more successful?

How can Terry Moe be part of the "future of school reform" when he was a major architect of a crashing failure of the past of school reform, Edison Schools? For those who failed to notice when the media suddenly stopped trumpeting Edison schools (when Edison's star fell, all its former cheerleaders suddenly pretended they had never heard of it), Moe was one of the promoters of the notion that for-profit Edison would bring private-sector efficiencies to public education. Yeah, that worked! Give us more works of brilliance, Professor Moe.

They couldn't find more than 3 women versus the 15 men who have been given a platform? Geez.

Also - incredibly Harvard and Stanford heavy - that could be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective, but it certainly doesn't lend itself to diversity of opinion.

Could you please list the names to go with the faces? I'm curious to know who these people are. They aren't in my social circle (for better or worse).
