People like me visit a large number of schools, talk with the principals and assistant principals and teachers and children,then leave and soon enough have our say: this school had some interesting things going inside it; that one was awful;the children over here are learning practically nothing; the children over there may be picking some things up in the classroom, but the price—psychological, emotional, spiritual if you will—they pay for the achievement is much too high.
