    build state of the art public schools; make them safe and secure, and hire highly paid, professionally trained teachers who can earn good benefits,job security, and access to state of the art ongoing professional develoment, and give them a high degree of autonomy. The schools will be better, the kids and parents happier, and test scores might go up, but I'd shit can the tests altogether in favor of authentic assessment. Each school would have plenty of professionally trained social workers too. In the words of Jonathan Kozol, let's THROW money at the schools. for real.
