The tragedy is that our public schools work so poorly. The comedy is the off-target comments about educational reform made by educators, business leaders, secretaries of education, presidents, and congress. Mathematical impossibilities, pompous postmodern pap, seemingly scholarly non-sequiturs, and lot of other nonsense give us much to laugh about.

Laughing is good for you, so see the humor and laugh before you cry, says the author James M. Kauffman, Professor Emeritus of Education at the University of Virginia. Public education doesn't have to be tragicomic. If we think better and act wisely, we can make education what it should be.
