1. Get rid of elected school boards. They make decisions based on politics NOT for the students.
2. Revisit welfare reform and include more ties to parent continuing education and student performance.
3. Offer incentives for administrators with core-subject backgrounds. There's something to be said about a leader who can do their teachers jobs in their absence.
4. Follow up on districts that received funds from the last stimulus bill. Make sure that they are using that money as it should be, especially for special education services.
