NEA Today ran a blurb on a 1998 book inspired by Dr. Seuss. The drawings include sketches he drew back in 1989. Who knew that Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! could be so prophetic?
The book tells the story of eccentric teachers using unorthodox ways to get kids to learn. The news comes that all the students must pass a test or their school will close. Gee, does this sound anything like real life? The book was published a full two years prior to the passage of NCLB.
I am now going to check Green Eggs and Ham for clues to the second coming.
