    Not to mention that much of the reform agenda involves teaching the kids things that aren't true.

    For example, a friend of mine said that an eighth-grade teacher he knows told him that the state tells them to teach the students that states can nullify a federal law that they disagree with.  (Dead serious; this is actually what the state of Texas has in the eighth-grade curriculum.)

    So the children grow up to be... uh, Fox News-watching morons.  Then Republicans complain about kids being "indoctrinated" (read: told the truth) when they get to college.
