It's Education Week for Cathy McMorris Rodgers and she's got it all figured out.
As Congress considers education reform, my three goals are:
1. Help each child achieve his or her full and unique potential
2. Give students the tools and knowledge to succeed in the 21st century
3. Ensure America’s educational system is the best in the world
To achieve these goals, several actions must be taken. First, we have to accurately measure the results that are being achieved in each school.
Second, administrators must have the authority to hire and fire teachers along with the flexibility to set their salaries.
Finally, we must encourage the growth of charter schools and voucher programs to provide real, immediate, alternatives to students in failing public schools.
Perhaps she is anticipating more failed public schools once they receive their new textbooks.
