Quote For The Day

I like this - comes from George Carlin's last interview:

"Lily Tomlin once said, and I am going to get this wrong so it’s a paraphrase, she said to be considered a success in a mediocre culture doesn’t say a lot for you."

For some reason, that resonates with me tonight.

Perhaps it has something to do with going back to an altered reality in the NYCDOE where I will now only be considered a "success" as a teacher if I "add value" to my students' test scores as judged by Kleinberg, Barack Obama, Whitney Tilson or some journalists at the Wall Street Journal or the LA Times.

A mediocre culture indeed.
