Signe Wilkinson and the Perfect Image

If you ever need a single, perfect image to summarize the case against education "reform," this cartoon by Signe Wilkinson is it.

Wilkinson has been the editorial cartoonist for the Philadelphia Daily News since 1985, after a four-year stint at the San Jose Mercury News. She was the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for the craft.

I'm ashamed to say I wasn't aware of her work until today, when this cartoon floated (without attribution) through my Facebook feed. Scanning through her bio, I only needed five words: raised by Quakers in Texas.

Here is some more of her work from the past few years:
