10 Years ago California decided to reform education

The result:
Despite big payouts to under-performing schools, the ones that continually failed to improve outcomes for schoolchildren (and there are hundreds of them) never faced any serious consequences.

The Tennessee General Assembly and Governor Phil Bredesen are now trying to "reform" education in Tennessee yet again. How many times are we going to let government leaders attempt to "fix" education?
