'To reform education, outsource it to parents'

"Reforming K-12 education is a wicked problem," Chunka Mui writes over at Forbes.
Even the best ideas are inevitably incomplete and contradictory. All fly in the face of entrenched interests and are beaten around by opposing ideologies. Not only are there no silver bullets, there isn't even a common view of the target. Rather than hope for reform, parents should consider opting out of the mess and focus instead on their own kids' learning.
