But people will still try, and when it doesn’t produce the desired outcome, they will try again, setting the threshold of required money higher than before. And, so the insane cycle repeats itself — again and again and again. Read More ›

K-12 Redesign: A Financial Overhaul

The United States is a world leader in K-12 education spending yet lags behind 25 other developed nations in K-12 student achievement. An education redesign, starting with a financial overhaul, is necessary if the U.S. will have a shot at remaining competitive with China, and others, in the global economy in the future.
