Yet again we see that Democrats are not to be trusted with education.
Find a program that works, that helps kids, that improves schools? Get rid of it.
Unionized “teachers” can’t stand the competition.
Wherever school choice has been allowed, that choice has led to improved education among those taking advantage of it. But at the cost of the monopoly on teaching by our least and dimmest.
So, of course, Democrats want “change” as in changing back to a system that demonstrably is failing our kids and our country. “Change” back to the unions that have so badly failed out country in education.
Know why we need more H1B visas for foreign workers to keep our economic engine running? Because unionized teachers have so badly destroyed American education. Know why much of our outsourcing is going on? Because smart people at a lower cost is a benefit to all. Better-educated people here would lessen the flow of outsourced jobs.
If Big Business had any brains, they’d be hammering school boards and Congress to fix our education – to abolish teachers’ unions and implement professionalism amongst teachers – good pay, performance-based measurements, no union protection of those who can’t cut it.
Education is supposed to be about our kids. Not a jobs programs for lazy unintelligent people who can’t pass their own qualification tests.
But that’s what unions have given America.
And expecting Democrats – who don’t have kids (look at the demographics of the blue states) – to fix something that affects kids, is just insane.
If people want a good future for their children, Democrats cannot be trusted with power in education – at all.
And as long as the GOP maintains its idiocy on abortion and homosexuality, neither can the GOP.
It is past time for adults to start leading the country again. But with Baby Boomers running the show – where are adults to be found? Certianly not among anyone believing the same old Liberal platitudes that have been destroying our education for 50 years – regardless of the age of the person saying them, Sen. Obama.
While we look, it is just insane to entrust policies that impact the future with those having no stake in that future – Democrats.
