It would have been nice if the writer could have looked a little deeper, but ideology repels depth and subtlety. When schools perform poorly, it is usually because they are in areas where they are asked to remedy a host of ills that having nothing to do with formal education (e.g., substitute parenting, discipline, crowd control, and even basic nutrition). Demanding that teachers and schools to do more is futile until we ask ourselves, as parents and community leaders, to inspire and manage our children."
