Sun-Times on Solutions to Failing Schools

sun-times-logo.pngThe Sun-Times gets school reform right in this editorial:

There are lots of ways to improve failing schools. Charters are one way, but so is investing in traditional schools by offering smaller class sizes, better teachers, financial incentives for teachers and a longer school year.

There is no single solution. Pretending otherwise is just as harmful as pretending that scores have gone up miraculously when we know they have not.
