The purpose of this blog is to educate and convince you on the merits of public school education reform. For me, education reform includes:

1. Increasing the amount of choice parents have with respect to selecting schools for their kids. Both vouchers and charter schools are excellent solutions for this problem.

2. Making principals accountable for school performance while giving them the authority to manage schools effectively.

3. Reducing or eliminating excessive and counterproductive teacher licensure requirements.

4. Reducing or eliminating excessive focus on teacher seniority with respect to pay, placements, etc.

5. Reducing or eliminating teacher tenure.

6. Decreasing the amount and strength of work rules imposed on the system by the teachers' unions.
