Why are the schools failing?

The schools are fine, the budget is enormous, the materials are fine, and the students are fine.
The problem: Teachers greed and educator's unions and administrator being former teachers are more loyal to their former teacher friends than improving education.
Uncontional vouchers for evey student is the solution. Then no one can complain, i.e., the evaluators, students, parents, teachers, adminitrators, taypayers, or School Boards.

Those are the hard working people that the politicians don't give a damn about. They are selfish, if you listen to the Democratic progressives, for wanting to keep some of their money or at least have some say in how it's spent.

This will hurt feelings but so be it. The common denominator is the "subgroup" known as special ed. It's the main reason districts are on warning lists. The public has no idea what iep's are and how they impact classroom environments. Ask your districts (like mt. Lebo) how many of those students are "shipped off" to other districts because they can't meet the child's needs. Do they do it so those scores don't affect theirs? Keep on blaming teachers you fools. Wake up and ask real questions.
