Yesterday pursuing the net I happened upon a short news item which not only was shocking but was verbal diarrhea spewed from our supposed president.
Keith Koffker of the site White House Dossier made a report of some comments Obummer made in front of some Australian high school students while in Australia rationalizing why he is sending 2,500 troops to be stationed there just in case.
Just in case what? Another story yet to be told - Obama's obsession with China.
Back to some of the excerpts from the post as follows:
"Speaking at a high school in Australia, President Obama told a group of Aussie students that their counterparts in his country had “fallen behind” when it comes to math and science, saying he wants to reform the public school system."
"Obama also asserted that poor children don’t get “support they need when they’re very young’’ and are “already behind’’ when they enter grammar school, according to a press pool report."
So our kids have "fallen behind" and he wants to reform the public school system please my head is about to explode.
Can this guy be more hypocritical and delusional about a system he supports, his party represents, his party only resists reform not embraces it, his ideology drives the indoctrination and propaganda educators are feeding our kids he has to be KIDDING is this a JOKE?
Let's not forget that HIS DAUGHTERS go to a private school at a cost of 30K per year and he was against school vouchers in Washington DC a program which helped many kids in poverty go to private/charter schools and receive a successful education and a hand up in life.
Yet there he goes again shooting his mouth off about how "BAD" america is or is this just more apologizing or is he just plain insensitive, dumb, and delusional?
One can be sure his idea of reform is to throw MORE MONEY down the proverbial rat hole which is supposed to be education in support of the DO NOTHING teachers' UNIONS which have their lips permanently attached to the ASS of the demoRat/progressive party which completes the huge nepotistic cronyism circle and it is about MONEY and POWER NOT our kids welfare.
The resistance to change and betterment of our school system would be bad enough but then to have a preponderance of liberal/progressive teachers who at every turn are trying to indoctrinate the next generation of demoRats/progressives/liberal america haters is beyond the pale.
The only way to reform the public education system in this country is to privatize it with charter schools and school vouchers getting rid of the lock the UNIONS have on the education system.
We are spending 1.13 TRILLION DOLLARS in the 2010 - 2011 calendar year on education.
What do we REALLY have to SHOW for it?
Since 1965 the money spent on education adjusted money that is has more than DOUBLED yet the value of that education our kids receive has flat lined but ghee "drop-out rates" have fallen and "SAT scores" are on the rise big WHOOP trillions and trillions of dollars supporting a failed rigid corrupt system which together with the politicans just seems to perpetuate itself not get any better.
The United States secondary education ranks 18th among other industrialized nations and 14th in reading yet we spend $10,821 per pupil 4th highest in the world.
When is the LIAR-in-CHIEF and the progressive/liberal party going to get real about education?
Get rid of the UNIONS to start - next eliminate the Department of Education and let the federal funding go directly to the states.
Without getting into a long drawn out discussion on the merits of options available to parents these days it would appear in recent student evaluations that:
1. Home school kids score BEST in testing and seem to be learning MORE and are more well rounded.
2. Charter schools/private schools come in a strong second on the learning curve and positive socialization.
3. Public schools despite the massive level of spending and immensity of the blob are a distant distant third when it comes to learning and results frozen in a morass of too many administrators and too many BAD teachers.
Lastly Obummer bemoans that "poor children" do not get the support they need early on and are therefore from the beginning behind and disadvantaged which to me would indicate that their parents are not engaged in being parents and not being responsible for their children's future - could this possibly be an unintended consequence of our entitlement culture especially among the "poor" were the dissolution of the family unit is very prevalent.
IT'S the PARENTS - so many parents have abdicated their parental responsibilities to the schools over the years that the schools are now a nanny and babysitting service instead of an educational institution especially in inner city school systems.
MONEY is not the PROBLEM.
UNIONS and PROGRESSIVES are the PROBLEM
PARENTS are part of the PROBLEM
The Federal Government needs to STAY OUT of EDUCATION
