People with Brains Rebut Anti-School-Gardener…
Fortunately, other bloggers with clearer heads posted their own rebuttals:
Jill Richardson at La Vida Locavore details how many other “subjects” children touch on while gardening. (This is my favorite.)
Tom Philpott over at Grist also takes a good look at school gardens and tries to offer a balanced and rant-free critique of the original article.
And Kurt Michael Frieze, also of Grist, offers a critique that is far more pointed, also worth a read.
Then there’s the one you’ll find here, which has links to a bunch of others…
I still can’t believe The Atlantic published anything this ridiculous.
