A Few Lessons Public Schools Need to Learn

As published in World Magazine, April 28, 2001 I have often maintained that the chief enemy of public education in this country is the public education system itself.

Frequently, these bureaucracies are extraordinarily resistant to change, fiercely protective of their own interests, and incapable of allowing any aspect of teaching or learning to go unregulated.

"Our state is getting a raw deal, we're missing out on a huge chunk of income and giving an unfair advantage to coal over oil and gas," said Karen Hadden, clean air coordinator of the Sustainable Energy and Economic Development Coalition, a Texas-based sustainable energy advocacy group.
