Educating from the Bench?

Judges are educating from the bench, says Jay P. Greene.

But what are we learning in these classes? Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Greene, a professor of education reform, addresses the phenomenon of “adequacy” lawsuits, such as those that have entangled Kansas for years. Here’s a portion of the concluding paragraph:

elected leaders have ceded control over the size of education budgets to unaccountable courts. Judges and the consultants they require are not easily held responsible for misusing evidence or wasting taxpayer dollars. As long as this continues, expect to spend more on education and see less in return.
