An ongoing discussion about conservatism in New Jersey.
Yes...a consumer paradigm will work
Derrell Bradford  (June 2, 2010, 8:17 pm)

Murray, you get at the heart of one of the great challenges here...people fundamentally believe there is something "different" about the way education is consumed and delivered than all other services. I won't say it's totally untrue, but it is largely myth driven. To wit...cell phones come with many functions...but you don't need to know all of them to make a call.
We can quantify the basic service of education into something understandable. (And here's where I talk out of both sides of my mouth) However, even though you can quantify and measure it, it still requires a certain art and skill that the current system drives out.
