What happens when you try to solve a problem by creating a bureaucracy full of rent-seeking, graft-splitting government sinecures designed mostly to provide a steady income to unelected members of the political class?
Well, the problem doesn’t go away, if that’s what you’re wondering about.
After fifteen years of exquisitely expensive “effort to address the achievement gap” in the Saint Paul schools…
…oh, do I even need to say it?
Fifteen years into a nationwide push to provide every student with an equal education, Minnesota schools have grown more segregated and the state’s nation-leading academic achievement gap refuses to close.
Minnesota now has more than 200 schools where students of color make up 90 percent or more of the enrollment, state data shows. That’s more than double what the state had in 2002, when the federal No Child Left Behind Act reinvigorated the national campaign for school equity.
If it doesn’t involve blowing up enemies or prosecuting offenders, then everything government does pretty much involves transferring money to bureaucrats.
