An old adage is that you can't drill a hole in someone's head and pour knowledge into it. Dr. Henry Brown seems to think that good school buildings and good teachers are all that students need to get a quality education.
This is where a student is in control of his or her destiny. This is why tests are important. Tests show who paid attention and who was prepared. If a student is inattentive, sleepy, disorderly, texting or just daydreaming, it will show in test scores.
A close friend of mine says some children go to school to get away from home, for sports activities, friends or just to get something to eat.
Good home life, parental guidance and a desire to learn are the solutions, but seem to be unattainable.
