  •  And then you have Virginia Republicans (0+ / 0-)

    doing this:

    As part of Virginia's waiver to opt out of mandates set out in the No Child Left Behind law, the state has created a controversial new set of education goals that are higher for white and Asian kids than for blacks, Latinos and students with disabilities.

    ,,,snip...

    Here's what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students' test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities.

    The GOP's newly found reasonableness (at least on the national stage) reminds me so much of a bully; gets caught, acts contrite, but doesn't really do anything to change.

    I fully expect the crazy to come back fully blown, shortly.
