Opposition to bad ideas isn’t ‘defending the status quo’

Gary Rubinstein says:

It is not fair to label a group of people who include me, Diane Ravitch, Anthony Cody, Katie Osgood, Jersey Jazzman, EduShyster, and so many others as ‘status quo defenders’ just because the changes that we think would improve the education system are not the exact same changes that people who know nothing about schools including Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, Arne Duncan, Whitney Tilson, and many others think would improve the education system.

Also, NCLB’s been around since 2001 and we’ve been making policy decisions in that direction for over a decade. Sorry, educational ‘reformers,’ but aren’t YOU the status quo?
