    is not an acceptable excuse. You remind me of the torture-apologists who kept saying 'but but but we are not as bad as the terrorists' or 'but, but but Pol Pot was even worse than us'

    Leave the bankers out of this. The central question is: how do we hold teachers accountable? When the teachers union become the 'Party of No' to education reforms, what are we going to do about it?

    •  Teachers have no (0+ / 0-)

      control over the raw material they are given.  Businesses would never work under those conditions.  Would you?  

      •  Ah- blame the student! (0+ / 0-)

        First you blame the bankers. Now you blame the students. Hey- what about the cafeteria cooks? Maybe they are secretly feeding the kids olestra and making them fail math!
