Many have it backwards. Education doesn't determine society, it reflects it. Take a good lokk at all the college graduates and in many ways those going into education are above the rest. In every career you will find unqualified folks. As in other areas, if there are poor administrators, there are less effective workers. The real key is how much is education and hard work valued? The real reason charter, public, private, and home schools work is parents who value education and want their children to get a good one. Like so much else, too many think an education should just be given. It doesn't work that way.
