Either, Or, Both

May 2, 2012

EITHER, OR, BOTH: Brookings Institution’s Mr. Paul T. Hill says today’s K-12 debate should not be an either-or battle over a particular school model, but a quest to “make public sponsorship compatible with effective education.” He applauds organizations like Rocketship, 4.0Schools, and NYC iZone taking this debate to center stage but concedes that not every school relying upon “human judgement and performance” will succeed. For all of the finger pointing, Mr. Hill reminds us that there are “many ways government can destroy good schools, and only one known way that it can support them.”
