It's really interesting that ten of Correa's students scored at the 99.99th percentile level. But see the response of the local administrator: "teaching methods don't matter."

Typical bureaucratic response to innovation - stamp it out, as a threat to the entire system.

I think James Tooley, author of _The Beautiful Tree_ and _Reclaiming Education_, is on the right track. Government provision of education is a failed experiment, a cul-de-sac, along the same level as the communist experiments with collectivization of the production and distribution of food.
