Abstract

Though the U.S. ruling class is divided on some issues—how quickly to attack Iran, how much to cut Social Security and Medicare, whether homosexuals should be tolerated or treated as the spawn of Satan—they are united on one thing: the need to "reform" the public school system. "Reform" means more tests, more market mechanisms, and fewer teachers' unions.… The agenda has deep bipartisan roots.
