    Dear Adam,

    Your article at Truth Out: “The Answer to the Great Question of Education Reform? The Number 42” is absolutely brilliant. I teach in curriculum studies and critique Taylorism and the cult of efficiency, too. I will be teaching with your article in two weeks when my grad students and I will be discussing high stakes testing. We already watched the documentary film “Clockwork” on Taylorism.

    Again, brilliant article, Adam. And so well crafted, with the opening and closing returning to Deep Thought.

    Thanks for sharing your work with the world.
    ~ Hannah
