And in blue state Connecticut, ur teachers sure are doing a bang up job. I have two interesting stories for you. The first, is about the furious teacher. The second about the cow lover. Most teachers try real hard I am sure, but some are just special. Union lawyers need to make money too I guess.

There is a huge push on now for the government creation of “universal pre-K” with increasing amounts of government control. It’s not going anywhere at the federal level, but Deblassio is trying to raise taxes and close charter schools to fund it in New York. I’ve made my thoughts on the matter quite clear: universal pre-K crosses me as a solution in search of a problem:
As the Reason documentary shows, any gains by
While reading a story about a public school that got caught overstepping their authority and violating parental rights in the process , a post written last year came to mind. In that incident a HS teacher incurred the wrath of the school board by warning students to be mindful of self implication WRT to an school surveys put in front of them.

In this case we are talking about another subject we have bandied about here at Right Thinking, the student loan bubble, which president Obama just recently pretended to want to fix. From the article:

As you know, Bobby Jindal has instituted a voucher system in Louisiana. It has proven very popular, especially among black families trapped in horrible schools. The Left is desperate to undo this experiment. They’ve tried lawsuits, which haven’t worked. They’ve tried to make an issue out of a small number of schools teaching young creationism rubbish in place … Read more
It is truly amazing what some school districts will try, all under the auspices of “It’s for the children”. Much like a congressional hearing on the use of steroids in sports(or to change the name of the Washington Redskins because it is offensive to some native Americans, yeah, they are still at it) all in a weak attempt to divert attention from their failures with a ,”Look over here!”, school boards would rather parents not … Read more
