Skip the music. I’s got an update on reinvention. Well, not I, but the Reinvention website has an update on reinvention. Take a look. I hadn’t seen this before. It’s somethin’. A little bit o’ news is better than what we ain’t see all summer. (Progress Summary is still as dead as a cold Chicago day.)
My one concern while readin’ the report was with the Adult Ed summary. The one blurb that caught my eye was:
Because a GED credential simply isn’t enough to qualify for a family-sustaining career…
I’d like to see the research that supports this statement. First, ’cause I thought we lived in a country where an education at any level, when completed with success, would lead to a good life. Second, if a GED ain’t good enough to feed a family, then somethin’ tells me there’s a problem with our economic system, not the GED program. A bit ‘o history may be helpful. More so than research.
