Turn 'em over... but to whom?
This is symptomatic of so many education issues. At first blush, the solution sounds obvious: "What, only 5% of kids passed the algebra test? That's despicable. Shut 'em down. Turn the school over to someone else!" But then, who is that someone else? Why would anyone want to run a school with only a 5% passing rate? Do they expect to make a profit? Are they missionaries? What's their plan? Once these questions get answered, the obvious solution becomes anything but.
