An interesting recent thought from Ms. Fox, "We have not yet clarified as a nation what the ends of education are and how to ensure students attain those ends. We can side step this issue all we want by blaming teachers, pointing to scores, disarming unions, throwing copious sums of money around but until we decide how we can get students involved in actually performing and demonstrating mastery of and desire to do the kinds of tasks needed for the jobs of the future, then we are wasting our time."
