Al Shanker

Former president of the American Federation of Teachers


It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned economy. It's a bureaucratic system where everyone's role is spelled out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and productivity. It's not a surprise when a school system doesn't improve. It more resembles a communist economy than our own market economy.
