The only thing we know for certain is that K-12 education in America is in deep trouble and dramatic changes are needed. We have spent the last 40 years trying to feel good by deluding ourselves into thinking preschool focus will solve our problems.
For some time now, our high schools and middle schools have been producing our “product” and the whole world knows the results. I support a state-level path to charter schools because: 1. It may work, and 2. It is at least doing something. We must take action now.
