How is war like comedy?

In both, if you screw up you generally find out really quickly. Education, on the other hand, is one of those fields where you can make a string of terrible decisions that can go for years, even decades without anyone noticing (and longer still before people care). For that reason alone, we can probably dismiss David Warsh's suggestion that education might become Obama's Vietnam.

That's the only thing in the post you can dismiss. The rest of it is sharp, on-target and pretty much essential reading if you're following the education debate.
