Currently the superintendent of public instruction is elected by "we the people," which provides some accountability. Creating yet another agency accountable only to the governor is unacceptable. Public education needs overhauling, but re-organizing or re-shuffling only creates chaos and doesn't solve the basic problem, which is poor academic education being providing to our state's children who have no other choice but to be forced to attend public indoctrination schools.
I love this quote: We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.
