    ....public education, within the World's most diverse country has been a mixed bag for good reason....but now an intensification on the part of deformers to nationalize curriculum, learning experience and assessment...this is so dangerous...the corporate oligarchs are solidifying their control over society, and the guy I campaigned for in '08 is facilitating the take over.

    Educational experience based on non-consensual behaviorism is authoritarian mind control.

      The more rabble I can rouse, the more crap I can sling, the more blood money I can intercept, the more calling out I can do, the more people hear what crap is being peddled, the more people know snake oil salesmen when they see them, the more likely that;

      President Obama

      will fire Arne Duncan, renounce Rahm Emanuel, gut No Child and Race To, and hire some experts who KNOW WHAT THE HELL they are talking about.

      I guess there is no reward, yet, about being RIGHT about nearly everything for the last 40 years in economics, geopolitics, education and heath care. I want to see people who were RIGHT promoted for the first time in 40 years, not merely great suckups and panderers with nice hair.  

      The President could change this tomorrow. I expect him to.
