[Susan notes: Okay, I'm trying to follow Stephen Krashen's good example and raise my voice beyond my website. And a reader asked me to take on George Will. I admit I usually ignore him.]
To the editor
Since George Will's love letter to Arne Duncan ("Mr. Duncan's Smart Lesson Plan," Jan. 31, 2011) is designed to be shared with those who find Mr. Duncan’s height his most awesome attribute, let me admit from the getgo that I'm more than a foot shorter than Mr. Duncan. And I'm appalled by his application of the full court press strategy to the teaching profession.
