The political benefits of manipulating the state’s accountability ratings are beginning to wane. It’s time to stop providing incentives to dumb down the public schools and be honest with the public. If that means more schools get a negative label, so be it.Only then will Texans get the public schools we truly deserve.
Most Texans have always had opportunities to do something about the education system. Given that education issues in Texas have been headline stories since “no pass, no play” came out in the 1980’s, I would argue that Texas has exactly the kinds of schools it deserves. And that is part of the reason why I homeschool.
