The generation now in school will be the first

in the history of the United States to leave the system
less well educated than their parents.

The system is failing.

It is failing in part because it has not changed with the times.
It is virtually unchanged in a world that is greatly changed.

The systemic intransigence is due in part to the resistance
of the incompetent and the corrupt, who fight the necessary
systemic changes because those changes would,
among other things,

expose their corruption and their incompetence.

For example;

  • complete and absolute transparency,
  • meaningful standards of conduct and competence, and
  • honest accountability at every level in the system.
the same changes that politicians eschew with as great a vigor.
