Are schools or teachers the issue?

My favorite blog, Freakonomics, posted something about an L.A Times study about which matters more: school choice or teacher effectiveness.

I’m not making an argument for either. Like most serious issues, as the state of education in our country is, the answer isn’t always so simple and can’t be solved with an either-or question.

But just as interesting as the study and the data related to it are the reader responses. They cover the spectrum. Across the board.

I don’t know that any questions get answered, but it leaves you with a lot to think about.
