In October 2011 an article I wrote appeared in Educational Leadership in which I compared
teaching to the test in schools to studying
for an eye exam. You can read it (and see a horrible picture that seems to have deteriorated with time) here.
The same comparison will be made in a book I have coming out this fall on the pitfalls of education reform, and Peg Tyre used it in her book The Good School.
I also spoke at the AASA conference the following spring and you can see an article on the talk here and see a brief interview here.
