If you are a regular to Blog Education & Tech, you shall remember that I am a blogger and I'd written a post about education almost everyday since 2003. Education & Tech provides you with education news, expert tech advice, classroom management ideas, and social media tools for educators, administrators, parents and k-12 students.

"There was never a golden era in education."

I wasn't offline this past week. It just happened that I didn't feel comfortable reading or writing anything to be shared in this blog, until today. Sometimes it feels like everyone is talking about education reform, the NBC's Education Nation or the call to Superman to save our education.

Today, however, I came across to a thoughtful and well elaborate post by @kaderosa. Ken takes the time to explain why the recently open section about education on the Huffington Post, does any favor to the so proclaimed reform in the American education.

There is one meme you are sure to read over and over at HuffPo Education, writes Ken DeRosa: How poverty and minority status prevent kids from learning.

Those are hard words Ken chose to explain the position of the HuffPo in its new section about Education. I, me and myself don't think poverty prevents people ---or even students to learn--- it may diminish their instrumental capacities, but it definitely won't hurt, even by little, the intellectual ones.

The author at D-Ed Reckoning's blog takes on the inaugural post written by Arianna Huffington. When she expresses that "something has gone terribly wrong with our education system," the statement is brought down by a fact with which most educators I think, agree: There was never a golden era in education!

That's why every new government, decides to test education infrastructure and find one or two things that need or can be changed without removing the status quo. Unfortunately, everyone wants the education to be reformed but pay little attention to those who really are the experts on this matter, the educators.

We need to remember that education was a slavish activity at the very beginning, and only the family of the emperors had the education grated. How does that changed by now? Just check the salaries of a Ed.D. and compare it to another Doctor in any different field.
