Where’s Our Michael Moore?

I’m finding it hard to get worked up about education reform these days when crazed but brilliant “Sicko” documentarian Michael Moore is taking on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, handsome medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, and mainstream coverage of health care issues (as well as missing the boat on Iraq, the treatment of veterans, etc.). It makes you think. Wouldn’t it be horrifying and exciting and disruptive if someone in education -- a more charismatic and compelling version of Jonathan Kozol, Debbie Meier, Marian Wright Edelman, et al -- was pushing this hard on the school reform front, and getting this kind of attention? Why isn’t there? If there was, who would be leading the way?
