Parents and teachers cannot speak about education without using those two words. They are essential to our expectations about school, teaching, and learning. When King speaks about education… not so much.
I have listened to him and he uses words such as data, baseline, “teaching is the core,” and even cut scores. Where is love? Where are the kids? His omission of love and kids from his obdurate defense of the establishment of a new baseline and subsequent abuse of the kids we love are clear indicators of where his heart and mind dwell.
If love is not foremost in your heart and kids are not first in your thoughts, you should not be in charge of education anywhere.
Lace to the Top because we love our kids.
