Jack Roeser: But the 80% of the state that is north of I-80…the schools districts are just immensely bad managers of everything they do. It’s hard to find—the teachers, listen I am not blaming the teachers—the only reason there is anything good that happens in the k-12 system is because- let’s say half the teachers bring their own integrity to a badly run system and they do the best they can with it. The other 50% have retired while still on the job, but the people that manage [the public school system] are the biggest dunderheads you could imagine.
