In the last three years, new teacher evaluation have passed, achievement gaps are being identified.   Let all the new mandates take the time to show if they can work or not.

Please stop this attack on public education.   It is a proven fact that the market model for business does not work for public education.   If we could "fire" our special needs, autistic, kids challenged by their environment, then yes, we could have unbelievable academic achievement.  But that is not the case in public education.
