The charter movement had it right from the get-go: Each school would have its own "charter" spelling out the results that it would be responsible for achieving.
We need a diversity of attempted solutions;mistakes must be honored, not attacked.
What if the perfect for which you have spent decades championing really is the enemy of the good?
Children are BORN experts at learning. Poor and rich. They couldn't survive a week if they weren't born intellectuals.
