The word “inefficient” is the most used and misused description of K-16. Parents and politicians who would make you believe they know the inefficient areas of our education system actually have no understanding of the problem. If inefficiencies exist the public is neither smart enough or knowledgeable enough to know those inefficiencies. Before education can be improved, the public must learn the actual causes of education’s failure. I’ve seen no effort by parents to do anything more than repeat meaningless accusation.
