9. The problem is that he is a one trick pony.

He continues to push inner city solutions on to rural and suburban schools. If we were serious about real education reforms, then teachers would have a seat at the table. Politicians have forced their solutions in an area where they have no expertise. Things often sound great, but do not work well when they're implemented. The reason: Teaching involves humans (teachers) interacting with other humans (students). Each encounter in unique. National solutions to education reform are no different than schools that look for the "magic bullet" program to help all students. It may help some students and be ineffective with others. It's time to find solutions that match the problems that each state and locality face.
