AHA executive director Jim Grossman was interviewed in a Hechinger Report article on whether the US educational system is responsible for the rise in political extremism. “You can’t blame the teachers and starve the teachers at the same time,” said Grossman. “We’ve starved our public schools, so you can’t say it’s the fault of the public schools unless you say it’s the fault of the American public for refusing to pay the taxes required to support an effective educational system.”
