(Just click on the image to go to the full article.)

This comment, linked to the eSchool News web page featuring a story on a new report from the National Governor’s Association (NGA) on what should be done in US education–this time, adopt national STEM standards based on the best international practice–is a nice indication of the sort of clash of cultures that exists in education circles.

By the way, I extracted the image containing these comments using Jing, chose the “embed” option, and then changed the hyperlink from the flickr image to the original eSchool News source. Here’s the code: <a href="http://www.eschoolnews.com/news/top-news/index.cfm?i=57443/" title="Photo Sharing"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3545/3328690728_a4c1735df9.jpg" width="500" height="305" alt="2009-03-04_1024"/></a>
