State Takeover of Struggling School Districts Not Going Well for New Jersey

The article from Education Week is here, though I think you have to be a subscriber to read it.

This is a sleeping issue in Washington State right now--Senator Litzow had initially proposed a robust state takeover of "failing" school districts through Senate Bill 5329, but by the time it worked its way through the legislative process it was a much different proposition.  My feeling is that it takes a certain level of arrogance to say that OSPI will care more about the kids in a school or district than the people who actually live in that community, and that's a message that cries of "Technical know-how!" and "Best practices!" will never be able to overcome.
