Something's Gotta Give
Publication Type:Web Article
Year of Publication:2005
The "teaser" for this article from a special summer Web-only issue of Educational Leadership reads: "Science fiction, comedy, adventure, drama: Test-based education reform has it all." Author Sharon J. Damore, in despair over the current direction of education accountability in America, snags the titles from a number of popular films and uses them as "a lens through which to view the perils and challenges of education accountability." Among the movies that come to Damore's mind: "Something's Gotta Give," "Lost in Translation," "The Lion King," "Titantic," and "Finding Nemo." Other stories in this special "virtual" issue of Educational Leadership focus on descriptions of TURNAROUND SCHOOLS across the PK-12 spectrum. It's all free to the public through the end of July.
