Chief Jokesters

Mayor Bloomberg, ex-chancellor Klein(thankfully), Catherine Black(Who?); not far behind from out of state: Arne Duncan, Michelle Rhee, Bill Gates, President Obama. Charter schools-please. National survey has them performing worse than regular schools 37% of the time. The same about 45% of the time and that's with picking and choosing the best kids. Why are they being pushed by all of the above? Have any of these people taught young children in a classroom for any significant time? Business people running school systems? Whose bright idea was that? Oh yes, Bloomberg. The Honorable Mayor needs to do the honorable thing and resign. The school system has not improved one iota since he received the complete control he asked for- inflated test scores, pitiful graduation rates with the need for remedial work for many of those who make it to college, no improvement in the disparity between minority students and non-minorities. When are we going to start teaching science, history, music again? More to come....
