The City of Montgomery is planning to study the idea of creating a city-operated school system, moving from the current county system.
It is nothing more than window dressing meant to appease the business community.
It is the latest in a long line of “fixes” for the troubled Montgomery Public Schools system, but like the rest of them – including the ongoing Alabama State Department of Education intervention – it ignores the root causes of the problems in favor of window dressing designed to fool outsiders that the school system is changing.
