So I know this wasn't the main point of either your or George's posts, but as much as you all want to resist the "education is in crisis" framing, I want to resist the "I have nothing against entrepreneurs" framing too. It sounds so reasonable but is exactly the logic that chisels away, inch by inch, notions of "public" "society" and "commons" and leaves us measuring using a balance sheet devoid of meaningful value. So absolutely, reframe, but be careful in reframing that you don't simply throw out one meta-narrative (humanism, progress) for another (economic growth). The "opportunity" we face is to model a radical re-localization in a globalized world, not simply becoming better engines of "growth."
