'Listen up, friends! Your own school district might hire McKinsey or Boston Consulting Group, and you need to know that they have a template for 'right-sizing' the district that has nothing to do with improving education.

(This usually causes costs to rise, since private companies that win contracts have to show a profit.) 'Here's a thought. How about if a committee of educators get a $1 million contract to study the operations of McKinsey and suggest ways to save money.
