Josh Stumpenhorst resigns from teaching

If you get a chance, you read I Resign from Teaching by Josh Stumpenhorst. Here was the comment I left:

Nice post.  
Your message is a powerful one that far too many people would find perfectly foreign and quite incomprehensible. 
Most of the rhetoric around school reform is indistinguishable. The only people who bring authentic ideas are those who have a clue about how children learn. 
Because most people don't have a clue how children learn, most school reform is done by standardizing curriculum and assessment while entirely ignoring pedagogy.
