Looking at your quote:
“We do not believe this conclusion comes as a surprise. Rather, the evidence in this case confirms what many educational experts and observers have long recognized: fundamental reforms are needed for Washington to meet its constitutional obligation to its students. Pouring more money into an outmoded system will not succeed. We turn then to the more difficult issue: what remedy this court should employ to ensure that the State complies with its article IX, section I duty.” (Emphasis ours.)
You claim this supports your view that reforms are needed. Where in that quote does it say education reform is needed? IT DOESEN"T it says reforms are needed which could be interpreted as any type of reform such as but not limited to:
education reform
tax reform
funding reform
evaluation reform for teachers
building code reform
property tax reform
curriculum reform
law enforcement reform
dress code reform
food service reform
and the list could go on and on and on and get crazier and crazier than the last 3. After 15+ years in education I have just about heard every opinion on improving education from pouring money into education, reforming curriculum, revising teacher evaluation, open concept classrooms, ability grouping, and so on with nothing really changing. We get so distracted with what is going on around us and how we compare to others that we don't take the time to see what is really needed. There is no silver bullet out there that will fix education except for individual communities coming together and taking an interest in the schools and children in their communities and finding what works for them.
