Adding Value to the Worthless?–Debra Meier

Then I read Deborah Meier’s December 26, 2012 piece[4] quoting material she had written 31-years ago:
 
“The task of returning testing to its proper place will be difficult….Our belief in democracy–that normal every day people can make sense of their world and learn to make decisions about it– is at stake…There…is arising a renewed interest in educational tracking…and in new legislative proposals to support private education… All these anti-egalitarian trends….are nourished by the renewed focus on testing.”
 
This wonderful quote continues:
 
“To the ideologues of the New Right, the focus on testing appears correct and proper, since the free play of market forces ‘naturally’ produces inequality.”
 
I repeated to myself; “free play of market forces ‘naturally’ produces inequality.”

  1. With havin so much content and articles do
    you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d really
    appreciate it.
