  •  actually education served as a model (16+ / 0-)

    of how to lie in order to achieve a pre-determined goal.  There was no Texas miracle, and that was supposedly the basis of applying this nationally.  The books were cooked in Texas, especially in Rod Paige's Houston, this WAS known before the proposal went to the Congress.

    Oh, and all the stuff about favorite contractors that we saw with Bechtel and KBR and so on?  We have now seen similar things with Reading First, and guess what?  The track record of many of the players in that goes back to Texas Reading Initiative in 1996.   I have been telling people for several years that what was done and is still being done in education is the road map for so much else, including Iraq.

    Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH! If impeachment is off the table, so is democracy
