How Can Public Education Be Transformed?

How can public education be transformed? The two ways we currently rely upon are not valid:

  1. State and federal government keep making more regulations, more requirements, most tests, more penalties and more rewards.
  2. Citizens kept agreeing to fund education at ever increasing amounts.

We know that these two ways simply keeps extending the present system. valid.  More regulation, more bureaucracy provides ever greater impediments to transformation. And, more money means more waste and more of the same, not transformation.

The transformation of public education will only occur if the public can effectively assert local control of public education and if democratic processes are vitalized.
