When are we going to get to the WHY, the HOW and the WHAT of public school debate?

In all of the Congressional ballyhoo over the Betsy DeVos nomination for Education Secretary, when mentioning "failing public schools" no one brought up WHY? nor did they approach the topics of HOW we change that and WHAT is needed to ensure equity of resources to do so. 

Instead, folks on Mrs. DeVos' side of politics simply want to continue eliminating public schools and substituting what's already proven not to be working any better, while those on the other side of the debate have little power to improve support for public schools or even change the debate towards a much more productive solution.
