Pay for Scores
President Obama's children attend private school. How many friends does he have whose children attend public school? What does he know about public education today? When was the last time that he walked into a public school that hadn't been "prepared" for his arrival? He missed the disruptive students and abusive administrators and parents. He saw the freshly painted walls and clean carpets, not the graffiti in the restrooms or the two legged desks. All the middle school students sixteen and older he didn't see them. They were hidden away in a classroom that he never saw. Yet these kids, who don't care - who are only biding their time until they can drop out of school, Obama wants to use their test scores to determine our salaries. There is something wrong with all of this.
