FROM THIS EPISODE

California education officials have rolled out a new accountability system for evaluating public schools. The goal is to give a fuller picture of how schools are doing beyond just test scores. And this, combined with the state's new school funding formula, is supposed to increase local control; give parents and communities more say in how education funding is spent; and most of all, help poor kids.  But Zócalo Public Square columnist Joe Mathews isn't buying it. The father of three boys calls it bureaucratic "gobbledygook" – and a system that appears as if it was intentionally designed to fail.
