State officials are threatening a takeover of “failing” public schools in Racine, Wisconsin, despite the fact that state takeovers have a track record of 0% success.
Local legislators are angling for a one-year delay in the falling of the ax on the community public schools.
Wisconsin officials are stuck in the outdated, obsolete test-and-punish ideology of No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top, both of which were massive failures.
Fresh thinking is needed, drawing on the wisdom and experience of educators, not on the bureaucrats at the state level.
