From California Policy Center :
One ally in this fight is Steve Greenhut , Western region director for the R Street Institute, who recently wrote an op-ed in the Orange County Register on the subject, in which he makes many of the points that I do above. His lede is, “Do you ever get the sense that fixing our nation’s ill-functioning public-education system is like trying to retrofit a belching, century old coal-fired power plant into a modern, clean-energy facility? Moving forward sometimes starts with a bulldozer – and the realization that one occasionally needs to start from scratch.”
Greenhut gets it. Fire up the bulldozers!
