The Politics of Barking and the State of Our Schools.
Davis, Andrew K.
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n10 p786-89 Jun 2001
A high-school English teacher deplores barking-media sound bites of politicians pretending to resolve complex educational problems with one-dimensional "solutions." Highlighting specific classroom learning situations, he ponders three paradoxes: justice is not necessarily fair; freedom comes with limits; and clarity comes through ambiguity. (MLH)
