"To me, when you ensure your own child has an arts-enriched, small-class size, deeply humanistic education and you advocate that those families who have fewer economic resources than you have should sit straight in their chairs and do what they are told while doubling and tripling up on rote memorization and test prep, you are guilty of educational colonialism."

Along similar lines, I've often thought about Philadelphia's "Renaissance School" movement as a kind of "Scramble for Africa". I'm interested in studying the colonial anxiety of turnaround schools...there seems to be a necessity for a "founding myth" that makes sweeping claims about the formerly failing school (vilifying teachers, staff, admin.).
