Addendum: They Are Also Coming For Your Kids

As Alex can tell you, the current rulers of Connecticut might be some of the worst in the country. It’s not just their policies; it is their disgusting determination to leverage the horror of the Sandy Hook massacre into advancing any liberal agenda item they can even remotely connect to it:

To wit:

Home-schoolers represent the only authentically radical social movement in the United States (Occupy Wall Street was a fashion statement) and so

The 13-year-old Desperado

Avery Gagliano is in trouble. Having more than ten unexcused absences from school in the Washington DC public school system, she’s been declared truant. What was she doing? Was she hanging out at the mall? Was she smoking with a bunch of loser? Doing drugs? Voting Republican?

Um, she was being a world-class piano prodigy:

The prodigy, who just turned 13, was one of 12 musicians selected from across the globe to play at

The School to Prison Pipeline Becomes Literal

Eh, what?

We’ve received reports that yesterday, a Belleville school teacher was locked in a bathroom at the High School due to the RFID system malfunctioning. Since school policy is to not allow the use of cell phones, no one knew where she was, or what happened to her until they went looking for her. Luckily, the teacher was carrying her purse, with her phone inside. When her co-workers retrieved their phones to try

It matters all the time you idiots!

I see that even the NYT is forced to admit that not every higher education field of study provides the same earning potential, albeit, the author prefixes this indubitable fact with the excuse that somehow it only matters in times of a recession. That’s bullshit. No, not the admission that degrees ins some fields are worth far more than others , but that this only happens to be the case during a recession.

Let’s … Read more

A Future VP Candidate, For Sure

What does Joe Biden, Jayson Blair, and a HS principal in NY have in common? This is just tooooooooo funny;

The key question which follows many of my posts, is this just a case of abject stupidity, or laziness? That kid was right, he is not writing his dissertation for his doctorate (what exactly is he a doctor of anyway?), nothing that would involve research or preparation, something short, original and from the heart would … Read more

Why am I not surprised? (UPDATED)

The other day I wrote about what I felt would fix the broken higher education machine and help us gain control of the student debt bubble, but I didn’t go much into the reason I did it much. See I suspected that whatever scheme the leftoids would come up with simply be a tax payer funded giveaway to those connected people they always favor, and now it looks like I was right:

Are Publick Skole Cistim Suks

Book learnin’ is hard, reading and writing, and all that memorizing stuff. Asking kids to know when the War of 1812 was, or who is buried in Grant’s Tomb (Grant who?), no wonder our teachers make so much money. I before E accept after………ah screw it, let’s go shoot some hoops.

So, who doesn’t have a date to the Prom?

OUCH! Chicago Public Schools prom theme: ‘This is Are Story’

An idea I am behind..

The next big bubble that will burst, if the wholehousing market or government money printing & incessant borrowing leftist agenda, and forced anti-savings money policies, which the Europeans have adopted, doesn’t blow up on us yet again, will be the student loan bubble. There is another $1.2 trillion of tax payer liability, waiting to blow up as the economic policies of the nanny staters create even more unemployment for the … Read more

The NOLA Experiment Forges Ahead

Hmm:

Benjamin Banneker Elementary closed Wednesday as New Orleans’s Recovery School District permanently shuttered its last five traditional public schools this week.

With the start of the next school year, the Recovery School District will be the first in the country made up completely of public charter schools, a milestone for New Orleans and a grand experiment in urban education for the nation.

It has been two decades since the first public charter school
