Educators fight competition even for failing schools
How can America fix its worst public schools? States don’t seem to know.I am pretty disgusted with the education lobby in Texas that has opposed school choice for parents who kids are in failing schools. These people want to through more money at a system that is not working rather than allow competition for school funding. I do not trust them to improve results when they are wasting much of the money they now get on more administrators and gold plated athletic facilities.
After a 2015 law renewed local control over public education, most states have established only vague plans, with no detailed prescriptions for intervention to improve persistently failing schools.
