Poor Elijah's Almanack: Enjoy Your Flight.
Berger, Peter N.
Teaching and Learning Literature with Children and Young Adults, v7 n5 p15-18 May-Jun 1998
Compares education summits led by businessmen, officials, and politicians to airplanes piloted by English teachers. Discusses the earth-shaking proclamations from a recent education convocation, but notes that much educational reform has been moving in the opposite direction, leaving teachers hanging in the middle, hamstrung between platitudes, misguided reform, and classroom reality.
