Seventy-five years of reforms _have_ resulted in significant change. Sadly, most of the changes are for the worse.

As a teacher for more than 25 years, I can say I completely agree. However, one point is attaching teacher pay or layoffs with childrens test scores. At the high school level, there are at least 3% of the student population that only cares about disruption. Because of political correctness, teachers hands are tied when it comes to discipline. This takes away from the teachers instructional time and quiet frankly the energy of the teacher at the detriment of the students who want to truly learn. Take away the problem and I bet you will see positive progress in the classroom.

If the disruptive pupils are disproportionately African American, then we must let the other children's education suffer. To do anything else would be racist.
