  •  and thus we get federal control over schools... (6+ / 0-)

    ... and a national curriculum, without even being able to raise  a peep about science or evolution or any of that stuff.

    •  And the curriculum SUCKS. (4+ / 0-)

      Language Arts curriculum like Open Court is the WORST. I feel so sorry for kids at underperforming schools because they are subjected to every lesson under the sun that convinces them how much reading sucks.

      Crap like choral reading and boring, boring stories with no point. It is painful to watch and listen to. To top it all off those schools are so focussed on test scores they get rid of everything that makes school fun like science, art, music, even PE and the kids just read boring shit all day long and drill  math over and over and over.

      Shocking the drop out rates are so high.
