Innovation and Charter Schools

14 09 2010

“This is what drives me crazy. Folks are absolutely furious that we want to innovate. ‘This guy wants to say public schools are failing!’ Well, they are. ‘He wants to say some teachers are lousy and should be fired.’ Well, they are and they should be. The fact that people get mad when you say that stuff, it’s amazing to me. People have no intention of having this business change. None.”

– Geoffrey Canada, from the excellent John Heilemann article, Schools: The Disaster Movie on Waiting for Superman in New York Magazine.
