Education: Fix is easier said than done.

Mike Feinberg: Let Teachers Teach

 

The co-founder of the Knowledge Is Power Program explains how charter schools may solve bureaucratic red tape in the American school system.

More like he explains *that* it must be done rather than how. KIPP is a great program, but the challenge is overcoming the fierce resistance of entrenched unions & administrators & politicians. Overcome that & teachers will teach.

Freeing teachers and principals to do what they do best is a big step. It takes enormous dedication to students and a clear commitment to accountability in order to work. But when all these elements are combined — a clear goal and achievable standards, authority at the school level, and flexibility in the classroom — the results are powerful and transformative.

More, please.
