Our product sucks…

December 1st, 2006

…so we need to charge our customers more money so we can improve it.

A businessperson who said that would be out of a job in minutes.

Luckily, buy cialis recipe he or she would always be able to find a position running a public school system in America.

    More specifically – Milwaukee Public Schools.

    Just look at the fathers of Milwaukee kids. They’re forming a support group to deal with of the lack of education their children are receiving in MPS.

    As one MPS dad, Anthony Drane, who works in a supplemental instruction program at Milwaukee Area Technical College, explains… He fears for his own children’s futures when he encounters former MPS students who lack basic study skills such as – wait for it – note taking!

    But – more money will fix everything. HA!

    Public schools aren’t a business. You can’t try to run it like one.

    Private schools are run as a business and they seem to do just fine.

    I understand that private schools don’t have to take everyone so they don’t have to deal with as many handicapped or learning disabled kids as the public schools do, but are you going to argue that the 55 percent of kids who never graduate from Milwaukee Public Schools were ALL “bad raw materials?”

    That aside, I wasn’t trying to argue that schools should be run as a business.

    I was pointing out that rewarding failure is an unlikely method of encouraging success.
