Let’s stop the whining about not getting enough money for education. We’ve already more than doubled per-pupil inflation-adjusted spending since the early 1970s, with little or nothing to show for it. Instead we need to work harder - parents, pupils, and professionals.

Longer school day and year, higher expectations, more homework, and greater respect for education and those educated: Those are the ‘secrets’ of Asian parents, pupils, and schools, all while spending far less than in America.

Time to follow what works, and drop what hasn’t for decades.
