Colliding Conversations

Because I think big, here's what I think about educational discourse in the U.S. (so we can get this large, complicated conversation going): there is, in my mind, a problematic division between conversations and policy concerns regarding k-12 education and higher education.

I applaud Obama's administration for its concern with k-12 reform. But what happens when those well-educated children reach college? There are so many enormous problems with higher education, it seems both systems should be addressed and conversations be connected.

Here's to our future in education.
