Consumerism Metaphor

If the customer is always right in business, why is the student never right in schools? 

Consistency is great… When things are going well. But when schools are losing millions of students because they are dropping out, things need to change. A business will often put slogans on shirts and posters that say something like “Serving … for 100 years” or something to that extent. If schools did that, I would laugh. You have also been failing how many kids each year? Over a million? No one would ever put their investments in schools if we took into account how much they are failing while they take in that much money. 

Not all of it is going to work. We have to try. Imagine if people in technology stopped when it didn’t work. We would never have anything new. Education has to be experimented with because the current system isn’t working and needs reform
