Note:  As I re-read this article in 2012, I wonder where exactly Linda Darling-Hammond was, even then, and how willing she may have been to front for corporate ed reform, the administration, and Arne Duncan.  I wonder, also, how many thought they really might be able to improve education for economically and socially disadvantaged children, without realizing how quickly the whole enterprise would be seized by corporations for profit from public funds.
