Apple is Better Than DOS… and XQ is Better Than the Common Core
Today’s NYTimes has an article by Elizabeth Harris describing the philanthropic approach being used by Powell Jobs, Steve Jobs widow. After reading the article I came away with a favorable impression. The idea of inviting individual schools to submit proposals for changing the HS paradigm makes a lot more sense than paying billions to create top-down reforms like the Common Core… but then Apple was always more imaginative than Microsoft… even though their imaginative tax sheltering is reprehensible. I’ll be eager to see how this small bore reform works as compared to the blunderbuss approach of most “reformers”.
