Mmm, IB is a fad..?
"Parents in Fairfax, Virginia, have succeeded in getting rid of one of the endless series of fad programs that distract American public schools from real education in real subjects. Like most fad programs, this one had a high-sounding name: The International Baccalaureate Curriculum."

And apparently it's a "junk program" as well. O.o

My dad's response to this: "Yeah, and education is just a fad, too. Watch out for that educated populace -- it can be dangerous."

Seriously, I thought that article was a joke, and I'd already seen the post on ibscrewed about the Washington Times article. I was planning on posting about it, because what the hell, STUPID. When you laugh at an article that's supposed to be self-righteous, you know something's wrong.
