Taking school reformers to task: Louisiana education chief John White on fixing K–12 reform

American K–12 schooling is awash in a sea of good intentions and ambitious reforms. But will these reforms deliver on their promise and endure for generations to come, or will they become short-lived fads that at best underdeliver and at worst perpetuate the very problems they intended to solve? Louisiana’s education chief John White argues that today's reformers must be cautious not to create a status quo of their own and offers some thoughts from the field about instituting lasting change.
