    Alec ramming shit down our throats? Here in Indiana, they already did and the Obama Administration was acting in collusion with them. After facilitating 6000 votes for President Obama in 2008, and working my ass off, not to mention the money I donated, the corporate wing of the Democratic Party took steps to robotize children's minds by doubling down on high stakes standardized testing.

    Educational experience based on non-consensual behaviorism is authoritarian mind control.

      Even Obama is in favor of these reforms.

      Wake up -- THIS IS A DONE DEAL.

      We need to make sure that the measurement systems, voucher programs, an Charter School regulations are applied fairly and sensibly.

      Now is not the time to lay down in front of the bulldozer. 'Cuz you'll get run over...

        "Yes, I knew that the results would end to the extreme detriment of an entire generation of children - but our political leaders said frog, so I jumped!"

        Not just pathetic; suicidal, in the long run.

        Come on, MM -- you must know that the measurement systems, voucher programs, and charter schools work against the development of the individual as a fully-functioning, rational, highly cognitive intellect; that's what the data says! At best, those methods simply don't equal the average public school!

        So why are you so desperate to help further the dumbing down of America?
