The Constant Bailer II

The superintendent of the financially inept Miami‐​Dade Schools wants a federal bailout, and it’s hard to blame him for desiring a piece of Washington’s ever‐​bigger Ineptitude Rewards Programs. But, as I wrote a couple of months ago — and a professor echoes in the article about the Supt’s request — public schools are, essentially, constantly being bailed out. They live off of government money, which come to think of it, might be why they seem constantly to be in trouble. Something about government control just always seems to end badly.
