Education takes change to court

It looked like a small deal to me. Sorry, but I’ve heard so much about miracle education reforms and strategies over the years, seen the oversized expectations, the intractable opposition, the resistance and puny results, that my expectations become exceedingly low. Initiative 1240 didn’t look like much — merely creating the possibility of 40 charter schools in five years. In a state this size, what’s the harm? A little experimentation never hurt. A tiny bit of competition might do some good for the educational powers that be.
