We have precious few dollars to support our public schools. I appreciate that many good legislators are cognizant of this fact. However, the reality is that many dollars are being slowly siphoned away from the majority of our children to support unproven ideas with little or no accountability.She makes the same mistake that most who argue against innovation do. She confuses longevity with accountability. I've made this argument before.
Now I invite Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh (the author of the op-ed) or other interested commenters to this blog to explain exactly what accountability means. In what way is the monopoly she's protecting more accountable than the "unproven ideas" she decries. What accountability does she have? To whom?
