    Your girlfriend's firing is not only the result of rethuglicans. Obama's education plan, executed by Arne Duncan is Bush's NCLB on steroids, grounded on the hyper-predatory actions of our business class. He and Arne applauded the mass firings of teachers in Rhode Island after test scores declined in their desperately impoverished student population.

    Arne's Race to the Top mandates that states institute merit pay, end tenure, increase privatized charter schools, evaluate teacher quality according to standardized test scores. An edu-corporate utopia.TN is the 'proud' recipient of RtT. Take a look at where we are headed:

    The Billionaire's Boys Club- Bill Gates, Eli Braod, the Walton Family, Rupert Murdock, hedge fund managers, Goldman Sachs, all have investments in the education business. Firing teachers is simply business as usual.

    Shameless sociopaths- all of them.
