This is our public education. It's shocking we aren't further behind other countries.

This teacher is an absolute moron. The recording is pretty entertaining once you get a minute or so into it. You clearly see what kind of idiot this teacher is around 7:00 in the video. Apparently you are only to be taught one political view point and you cannot say anything bad about Obama or you will be arrested. In addition the police don't have to read you your rights when arrested and what counts as a "fact of the day" in class is that Romney was a bully. I feel sorry for our kids.

And you can blame a teacher for that, right?

Of course, it's all the fault of public employee unions.

It all started back in the Reagan administration when it was decided that "catsup" was considered a vegetable on the school lunch menu...

Probably should blame Congress, not Reagan.

In mid-1981, only a few months after Reagan took office, Congress cut $1 billion from child-nutrition funding and gave the USDA 90 days--the blink of an eye, for the federal bureaucracy--to come up with new standards that would enable school districts to economize, in theory without compromising nutrition.
You remember Tip O'Neill, right?

The House numbers

Democratic Party 244 56.1%
Republican Party 191 43.9%

Senate

Republican Party 53
Democratic Party 46
Independent 1


But rant on!

Suppose teachers are distributed along a bell curve with one tail at really, really bad, and the other tail at really, really good. Where do you think this teacher would fall? Is she on the really, really bad tail, or is she somewhere nearer the middle?

Nearly half of Florida high school students fail the reading portion of the FCAT (a standerdized test).

http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/05/1...cores-set.html

Their solution? Change the standards.

Maybe they need to change the wording to "Wut U go 4 bro"?

Probably at least half of the half that failed knows how to 'text'.

Hey, this is really easy. The solution is just raise taxes again and throw more money at the problem. Look at California, it's been run by the Libs for many years now, it should be a liberal paradise out here. Once again the reality is, it's not a revenue problem it is a spending problem. Atlus Shrugged is getting closer to reality. As well as Animal Farm.

I would say she's within one standard deviation of the average on the low side.

Ohio was 48th in education through decades of Republican governors.
