“It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned
economy. It’s a bureaucratic system where everybody’s role is spelled
out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and
productivity. It’s not a surprise when a school system doesn’t improve.
It more resembles a Communist economy than our own market economy.”
– Albert Shanker
(1928-1997) former president of the American Federation of Teachers
