Several years ago, in an article for Kappan Magazine, Two Roads Diverge for American Education, I wrote, “We are at a fork in the road in American education. At this moment, we have to choose which road to travel — and that choice will make all the difference.” My view of the two roads remains constant: One builds expertise and internal capacity in learning organizations in every school and runs toward collaboration. The other privileges autonomy for the already successful and charter schools while leading backward to a command-and-control era for everyone else.
