Bottom line? As the Web site's motto reads, "Free minds and free markets." In other words, move out of the way, government. In a town like Cleveland, with big government bureaucracies, cumbersome regulations and old-school unions, the series argues, it's no wonder times are so tough.

They moved away from the Eastern seaboard when the cities became overpopulated. They moved away from the midwestern industrial cities as they prospered and now they are totally abandoning them as the jobs are drying up.

Trying hard to follow you here and not jump to conclusions, but I'm lost. It's not a white, black, brown thing, it's a human condition thing.

It should help those micro-issues and what was considered rogressive in 1905 can probably step aside if the city is losing menoy on these enterprises.But these are the "innovative solutions" that are going to "save Cleveland" ?I'll keep watching with an open mind becasue this is interetsing, but they need to step the game up.

Here's today's episode, fixing Cleveland's schools.Good segment, but they never quite come out and makie it plain, do they?Private , praochial, good charter schools work consistently for 3 reasons, regardles of SES.1. They can kick bad students out. If you are a screw up, ur gone. End of story. Public schools have to dance around with the idiots. Privates just kick them out to public schools. problems solved.2. They can hire and fire teachers as they wish. Period. You want to mail it in as a burn out or you are a poor teacher? Buh-bye. No union.3. By virue of tuition or mandate, parents / families are involved and comitted to their kids' education. There is nothing that any school or teacher can do whatsoever to make a difference if the student is apathetic becasue the family is apathetic. Everything else is a non-starter.You can dress it up any way you want and use buzzwords like "educational entrepreneurship" or make public school kids wear uniforms, or decrease the sze of schools. You can close underperforming schools. Doesn't matter. Until those three elemnts are in place, you got nothing.It really is just that simple.
