Education(Internet) = Decentralization(Education)=Solution ...
The narrative has been hammered out in flowery language as the opening paragraph of every  article about education.  Schools are crowded, teachers are poorly paid, teachers are bad at their jobs, teachers unions bankrupt the schools, students are lazier etc.  The solution for the past century has been adjustment of money.  Most recently: More money for good schools, less money for bad schools.

Authority is the legitimate power of a supervisor to direct subordinates to take action within the scope of the supervisor's position. By extension, this power, or a part thereof, is delegated and used in the name of a supervisor. Delegation is the downward transfer of formal authority from superior to subordinate. The employee is empowered to act for the supervisor, ...
