More on Business-Style Management of Education

I offered some thoughts the other day about business-think in schools, and I noticed this post by Diane Ravitch in the blog she shares with Deborah Meier on EdWeek. It's extremely thoughtful, quite short, and very worthwhile reading.

I share her aggravation over the notion that only people who are not involved with schools are able to fix them and that running schools like businesses is the magic bullet. Not that outsiders and business practices can't offer some valuable insight, but I hardly think that they offer all the answers.
