OR SO WE THINKG??!?!
actually what /really/ bothers me about the american school system is its obsession with figuring out who to “blame”

because like

let’s say test scores are lowers one year

BAM

education system explodes into arguing over who whose FAULT it is

"oh the teachers need to teach better we should dock their funding if they don’t conform to THESE new rules"

"obviously the schools are taking all the money we need to lower their funds if they didn’t do good"

"IT’S THE KIDS! THEY DON’T WANT TO LEARN! WE HAVE TO MAKE RULES TIGHTER SO THEY HAVE TO!"

"their parents are obviously not trying hard enough, let’s crack down on parent child relationships"

and EVERY YEAR i hear this bullshit and it’s just

it’s not arguing “what can we do to make it better?”

it’s arguing “who can we blame for it and punish”
