Between the two Bush brothers–George W. and Jeb–the nation’s education system is locked into a regime of endless testing, grading, evaluating, marking, measuring, etc.
It doesn’t seem to get us very far. After all, Texas has been in this business for as long as anyone can remember–was it the mid-80s?–and folks there are still complaining about failing schools.

What corporation would be proud that it had created a quality-control system that made its employees demoralized and angry?
If this is a business model, it’s bad business. Or monkey business.
