A Row Of Little Georgetown Boutiques Selling Fancy Shoes

Prada Over the last few days, Dean Millot has been taking on my questions from late last week about the recent surge of education think tanks.  However, today's installment on this topic is where Millot really gets going.  Wow.  In one long post, the cantankerous but thoughtful Millot transforms the notion of education "think tanks" -- with all the prestige and intellectual history that is associated with the term -- into nothing more than well-dressed sales assistants who are, on behalf of their funders, selling fancy-sounding ideas in tiny little high-priced shops just like the ones you can find in Georgetown.
