Solutions that don’t break the bank, reinvent the wheel or marginalize our teachers are within our grasp. We could have rigorous classes, safe and disciplined schools and treat teachers like valued colleagues rather than easily replaceable cogs, and we could do so tomorrow if we wanted.

What has Corey Booker done for Education? Or hey Corey, mind your own %^&ing business.
What has Corey Booker done for Education? Or hey Corey, mind
your own %^&ing business.
I get it, he buys his staff hot pockets, he helps old ladies
shovel snow and he gives good face time on the Sunday Morning talk shows but if
we are being honest what has he done for education.
With great fanfare he took a hundred million dollars form
the founder of Facebook and then nothing happened. People were so fed up of the
way things were going they went against the status quo candidate and elected
somebody who cares about and wants to fix their schools when he left.
Since this is the case I find it incredulous that he thought
to weigh in on a lawsuit filed in Florida by the PTA, the NAACP, the State
School Board Association and the League of Women voters, you know all those
child hating organizations, when they said no more to the states voucher
From Booker's Twitter Feed: FL Senate Ed Chair declines school board award after they sue to throw 70,000 poor kids out of schools #dropthesuithttp://goo.gl/FXOiXA
He joined Bobby Jindal and numerous other anti-public education republicans in questioning the suit.
Not only does the states Voucher program obliterate the first amendment but it takes hundreds of millions out of
our schools and even more out of the states general fund and filters kids into
schools that resist accountability, like I resist Ebola. They are a bad deal all around
Where are Booker’s tweets about common core and how it
doesn’t address poverty, the shoddy treatment of Florida’s teachers, the
hundreds of charter schools that have opened taken public money and closed
leaving families and communities in a lurch in Florida and the cognitive
dissonance that voucher supporters have? They say our public schools must have
common core, STEM, high stakes testing, and evaluations based on tests while
private schools that take vouchers are exempt.
Well Corey, where are they?
Nowhere, so Corey unles you are going to get a clue, why don’t you shut the &^%$ up
and worry about New Jersey, last I saw you had plenty of problems there.
