Arrogance in Public Education

In an essay by Joseph C. Phillips (author of He Talk Like a White Boy), we read:
Ideally, public education is the marrying of public dollars with educators, who work in partnership with parents giving weight to the concerns, interests and values of those ultimately responsible for the upbringing of the next generation. Alas, all too often what we experience is a rigid bureaucracy with a voracious appetite for public funds that is largely indifferent and unresponsive to the concerns of parents who have little choice and no power.
