  •  For starters, let's get ride of using a business (0+ / 0-)

    model to run education.  Why conservatives think that a business model is the be all end all cure for civic institutions totally escapes me.  Business and government have two very different goals.  I'm thankful to work in a large school district who, when searching for a new superintendent, preferred to hire someone who was an educator rather than a business leader.   One of the first things our new supt. did was to eliminate the year end standardized test for 2nd graders.  He thinks we test too much.  Upon hearing this, 12,000 teachers heaved a huge sigh of relief!
