Education reform legislative agenda of congressman, believe it or not...

It's hard to imagine a member of Congress Jack Kimble pushing through an educational legislative agenda in his role as honorary member of Last Stand.  Here is one and go to the link to read the others.
"We believe that white children from wealthy backgrounds make the best teachers for urban schools regardless of whether or not they have teaching credentials.  For that reason, we favor increasing support for programs like Teach For America, who have proved excellent suppliers of uncertified wealthy kids."
 And Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes, Sen. Mark Grisanti and Buffalo ReformEd, attempting to push the parent trigger bill through Albany at the end of the legislative session in June applicable only to  Buffalo schools would like this one:
"We support the parent trigger, which allows parents to get rid of lazy public servants in favor of a friendly corporation run charter school."
What about this one:
"Any teacher who received a complaint from either a parent or student will be returned to probationary status and in the case of a second complaint the teacher will be immediately dismissed."
 Andrew Cuomo couldn't agree more with this one:
"We favor making the Bush tax cuts permanent and ending the death tax so that the wealthy will have more money to spend supporting school reform." 
Read the others on the website post let me know what you think...

We support the parent trigger, which allows parents to get rid of lazy public servants in favor of a friendly corporation run charter school.

  1. i'm not quite sure why people continue to suggest that 'trickle down economics' continue to work in this sort of economic climate. i don't comment much, insurgent, but keep writing the good blog. while entries like this are a bit infuriating, it's good to see them anyway. furthermore, i wonder what constitutes a 'complaint' -- all it would take was one dissatisfied parent and you're ousted. where was that second comment from?

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
