Are Schools and Prisons More Alike Than We'd Care To Admit?

I'm consistantly impressed by what I read at the blog Education Innovation, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any teacher who thinks outside the box. The post Education's Paper-and-Pencil Penitentiary: Life Behind The Walls, comparing teachers and students to prisoners (among other throughts) is a perfect example of the kind of thought-provoking articles you'll find. The whole idea is fascinating, if not frightening. Think about it over the weekend.
