The central argument is that the people are focussing on the symptoms and not their causes. We use medical analogies. Most of the ills in the education system as a whole are the products of systemic failure caused largely by mad political interference. Remove those and the symptoms disappear.  angel1

Yes but a 'don't cure the symtoms' stance just becomes a root cause for more issues

How would you like it if you turn up to a doctors appointment and they say "well yes I could prescribe X to cure your symptoms but surely my time would be better employed looking at addressing the root causes of poor health"?

You'd be tempted to smack them in the mouth
Well, whatever nevermind
