    Obama Plan to Change "No Child Left Behind"

    I agree with this move. The Federal government is too involved in local education. Communities, school boards etc should be handling this stuff. The single biggest factor keeping the poor down in our society is the failure of our public schools. In particular the inner city schools are horrendous. Only the lucky few that win charter lotteries really have a good shot to end the cycle of poverty. Until we have school choice this will never change.

    The irony about the whole education issue in a nutshell is that the Democrats, self described champions of the poor, are the ones whose policies continue to keep them poor. They fight against charter schools with all of their fire and brimstone. They fight against school choice as if the evidence of the success of those programs doesn't exist. And worst of all they protect the teachers unions whose policies are geared toward the exact opposite of what would be good for our children.

    I can't imagine a single parent that would not comprehend the evils of a union contract that does not allow for the firing of bad teachers. What parent would not welcome a state policy that gave parents the equivalent of a school voucher which they could take and use at whatever school they chose? Only union thuggery stands in the way of this sort of common sense free market solution to our inner city education problem and to a larger extent the employment and class mobility problem in this country.

    no child was a failure. Like testing for certain subjects makes the whole system better.

    and chiefs charter schools are all over Philadelphia, a hugely Democratic city. not all democrats are against them.

    Good idea. Until I got to this line:

    "Congress hasn't been able to do it. So I will," Obama said.

    This guy doesn't even scratch the surface of getting it

    Not a suprise really. The U.S. has been inching towards Tyrany of the Executive/Bureaucracy for many a long year now.

    Obama is only the most recent to propel the power of the Presidency and his bureaucracy over that of the other branches, specificly over Congress.

    Even when they get it right... they manage to get it so wrong. Sad. Just sad.

    So they should be overruled then, aye? By someone looking out for the people, aye? Someone whose only interest is Governing, and bringing fairness to the workers, aye?

    Sounds like Viva La Peoples Revolucion to me. You ok living under a revolving dictatorship Bit? Serious question.

    Just happened to read through this warrgarble thread.

    Not weighing an opinion either way, but if pubs are old people that piss themselves, PK, what are dems?

    :dunno:

    Trying to grasp why I should value the opinion of ANY of the loudmouths in this forum.
