A new report, part of the shock and awe campaign being waged against public education, teacher unions and anyone who can still think critically and ask questions, is being brought to us by Condoleezza Rice and Joel Klein. The nation's security is at risk if the nation's public schools don't improve. Excuse me while I throw up.
With education budgets being slashed to the bone across the country: more money being spent on a failed policy of testing and filling in the bubbles, a dysfunctional Congress and Republican party that is more interested in preventing women from getting birth control and outlawing pornography; two wars that have bankrupted the country while sending service men and women to do three and four tours of duty; Wall Street crimes that have brought down the standard of living and left cities and towns broke; a crumbling infrastructure and a widening gap between rich and poor; one in five children now living in poverty; this time the lie is so big that anyone with the slightest bit of sanity and intelligence can see through the propaganda.
Yet, that doesn't stop people like Joel Klein and his henchmen and women who will stop at nothing to get their greedy hands in the corporate takeover jar as they privatize public education with fear mongering.
The biggest threat to our national security at this point is the continued attack on education, intelligence, creativity and freedom perpetuated by liars and crooks who have way too much power and need to be called out and exposed as evil, destructive liars who have no shame.
