Gates Foundation Gives Up. Who Cleans Up The Mess?
An editorial in the Los Angeles Times quotes (here) from a Gates Foundation letter that admits failure in their education reform efforts. The Times editorial in effect says the billionaires "shouldn't be setting America's public school agenda" because they're making a hash of it. But Bob Peterson points out (here) that they shouldn't get to just walk away either after wreaking so much havoc. This is an interesting moment of reconning for the education reform movement.
