Thank you for the comment Sigamoney. I agree that we need a long term view of education if we are to make solid gains in improving outcomes for the majority of children. Too often we neglect to consider the political economy aspects of education reform and offer only technocratic solutions. We still have a long way to go to understanding the views of different stakeholders and how they affect educational change, let alone how to overcome differences, comes to a collective understanding, and move forward. Hopefully, with more research, experience and experimentation we will get there.
