The Midas Touch Gone Bad--Yet Again

There is a singularly glaring oversight on the part of educational "reformers."  

They have their heart set on evaluating students and their teachers at every turn, but have they ever been evaluated?  They start with the assumption that they have the ideal models and that they are beyond question.  They work with the assumption that they have the right to judge everyone, yet not be judged themselves.

But what if their assumptions are wrong?  What if they fail by my standards, by your standards, by the standards of most teachers?  What if they fail by most parental standards?  And, what if they ultimately fail even by their own standards?  What if they have the Midas Touch gone bad!
