Toxic Culture of Education

"In 1983, a publication called, “A Nation At Risk”, showed standardized tests proved schools were failing, teachers were failing, students were failing and when everything is failing…guess what we need? New text books, new work books, new resources, new training, accountability systems, new schools, private schools, charter schools, and who is it that creates all of these things that all of a sudden we need. Our Super Villain, private education companies. The only way to feed a business model in this toxic culture of education is to perpetuate a picture of failure. I would love to meet any education company that has a business model that is built upon long term student success. There simply is no money in long term student success."
