You must read EduShyster’s description of “reform” in Minneapolis, which she calls “Minnsanity.” Folks, you can’t make this stuff up.

Is there a method in their madness? Do they have any evidence for what they are doing? If it fails and fails, and they do the same thing over and over, what do you call it?

Stories like these convince me that the unrealistic claims of reformers can’t go on forever. At some point, the bills come due. At some point, reality intrudes.

Policy must have some relationship to evidence. High expectations are well and good, but they are no substitute for evidence, proof, reality.
