I read today that 54% of the schools in Massachusetts are now “failing” according to No Child Left Behind.  That’s Massachusetts, as in The Cradle of Public Education.

I don’t believe it.  Nope.  No way.

I believe that the failure here is in high-stakes testing, NCLB and the Obama/Duncan agenda to privatize our public schools.

Hello!  People, did you hear that? Obama wants to turn over our public schools to the highest bidder! Get in touch with your inner-Norman Rockwell, or your inner-Arthur Rothstein, the great FSA photographer who stirred the nation with his photographs of the Dust Bowl.  He seemed to have a warm spot for public schools too. He shot a lot of them.  He knew they were national treasures and NOT FOR SALE!
