In larger school districts, we should abolish the local school board, and auction off each school to the highest bidder with the following understanding: that the new owners will be paid according to how their students do on standardized tests; "Distinguished" scores get 1.3*cost; "Proficient" scores get 1.0*cost; etc. This would create a systemic incentive to improve, which is the primary ingredient missing from the current system.
