Walt Gardner:

The irony is that reformers demand evidence-based solutions, and yet they are quite willing to sign contracts with groups devoid of any such data to support their proposals. If this policy is to continue, then at least let's adopt the American Enterprise Institute's recommendation that school districts demand performance guarantees. This would make contractors forfeit payments when they fail to achieve their goals.

Will the Amazon for education?
