Education's 'Groundhog day'

Abstract

"Media stories about public schools show the reporters as non-Bill Murray characters in "Groundhog Day." In the 1993 movie, the same Groundhog Day repeats itself over and over again, but only Murray's character sees the repetition. About schools, the media report the present with no apparent historical awareness that it's the same story once again. As a consequence, Americans keep waking up to headlines declaring that, apparently for the first time ever, the public school sky is falling. The public doesn't seem to notice the recurrences, either."
