When you first encounter a broken system, like the education system in the US, what do you do? How do you map out the issues?

First we try to understand what the existing system does, and what might be wrong with it--often the failures are obvious, but solutions are not. Sometimes even the failures aren't so obvious. We try to understand well what the current situation is before suggesting any changes...for school systems, that involves lots of meetings with school officials, parent groups, teachers... these days a lot of that is spearheaded (in the U.S.) by a nonprofit organization called IIPSC: Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice.
