We all know education in the United States has been pummeled recently and a large portion of the attack has been attributed to how this country performs on the global stage. It’s a tale we have been told to argue for a whole slew of mandates.
In my guest post today on SmartBrief’s SmartBlog on Education I suggest that international and national testing data may not be telling the bad news some claim it does.

I wrote a related post last October “Education’s Own 47%.”
There is much to do in education, we all continue to work to impact the lives of every child–in the US and internationally–but I suggest the way we grow is by working in collaboration, not in competition.
It’s time to tell your story, our collective story, to change the fairytale into fact.
