RTTT is profoundly reactionary. Period.

It's:

(a) driven by data,

(b) derived from tests,

(c) keyed to subject-matter standards,

(d) keyed to a curriculum adopted in 1893.

Yes, 1893.

Imagine a car being driven at high speed down a winding rural road, with all
the passengers, including the driver, peering intently out the back window.
