    The movie was nice but we have a genuine national tragedy unfolding here and nobody seems to give a damn...

    The Obama Administration is in bed with Wall Street edushysters and Laura's article is spot on.

    This business of opening up public education to corporate locusts who staff pseudo teachers in flyby charters while test publishing companies make billions off of ancillary material and test kits where by tax dollars are swallowed up for more of the same government mandated, mind numbing, non-consensual standardized educational experience will be the death of this Democracy if it hasn't done us in already.

    Is it too late to wake the frog out of the boiling water container or is the frog already par-boiled?

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