Yes, that’s an actual strategy, from an actual public official. Lame Duck Governor, Jack Markell.
The governor insists that his administration is not blaming the teachers.
“No one is questioning the commitment of these teachers,” Markell said. “They do incredibly challenging work. But we have to do better.”
Markell and Secretary of Education Mark Murphy say the way to fix these schools is to put the best possible principals in charge and free them from district rules so they can do things like add extra school hours, manage their budgets, and select new curricula.
