More money alone is not going to get the improvement needed in schools to catch up with the achievement gaps compared to other countries. Along with these proposed additional funds how about going to a year around school year to help improve achievement?

We spend more than enough on education but nothing has significantly improved over the last 50 years. We should increase the wise and practical use of technology, drag the teachers union, local and state - and federal admins out of the Dark Ages - and we could do a better job and spend at least 15% less.

Here's how we improve our education system: PARENTS start getting involved in your child's education! Get off of the athletic field, out of the bars and turn the dang TVs off and start reading to your young children and encourage your kids to practice rigorous studies when it comes to their own education. Kids and parents need to take ownership of what they are learning. The government can't do that.

Mr Willert's comments are pointless and meaningless. Would love to hear about real plans and strategies to improve education from our great sup! He could learn a lot from Minneota, Lakeview, or other smaller districts who seem to be doing better than MPS. It really comes down for Marshall needing new leadership. Not sure his doctorate helped us very much.
