Mr. Obama has some REAL accountability in mind for which there is ample bipartisan support: he and the Oligarchs want to fire the principals and teachers in America's poorest public schools for not solving the poverty problem that American corporations and government continue to ignore to the point of not even mentioning it--all the while mouthing cynical bromides about motivating test-choked and impoverished high schoolers to stay in segregated medium security facilities for some more tests and career-building exercises and inventories. It's a grad, grad, grad, grad, grad world.
When you read the White House blog on the big "Grad Nation" event today led by Iraq war stooge, Colin Powell, you get to the "Grad Nation" site, where you, too, can make an offering to help Wal-Mart's efforts to save the Dropout. Brought to you by:
The presenting sponsor for Grad Nation is the State Farm Insurance Company. Other major sponsors include the Simon Foundation for Education and Housing, ING Foundation, Walmart Foundation, AT&T, The Boeing Company, the Pearson Foundation, and Jim and Donna Barksdale.There is no more fitting irony than the name for this outrageous bunch of self-serving fools who continue to find it entirely acceptable to throw away the bottom quintile of the nation's children, generation after generation. Oh yes, here comes America's Promise Alliance, again--and like always, they have left out the "Broken."
