After all, legislators, bureaucrats, and some parents think the answer is obvious -- simply replace a handful of bad teachers, increase money spent on education, and upgrade the buildings. Yet the real problems are far more severe than such easy targets, and much less costly to fix. Those three don't even make the top five, when we look at what we must do to restore quality education in our urban schools.
If we want a real solution for our children, then for once we must focus on the real problems.
