Arne Duncan’s backhanded insult to teachers.

When Arne Duncan said …he found it “fascinating” that some of the opposition to the Common Core State Standards has come from “white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were.” He wasn’t just insulting suburban moms he was insulting teachers too.

“Their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were.” Hmmm and who works at those schools and who is teaching the children? Why teachers of course.

You know teachers who according to Duncan have been running some kind of scam to fool parents into thinking their children were smart and their schools were doing well. He must also think, thank goodness common core has come along and exposed those lousy teachers and schools for what they are.

Mothers, teachers, schools, according to Duncan nobody is doing their job; the hubris of this guy who has never taught a day in his life that only he knows what schools need is mind boggling and nothing close to being deserved. Then if he thinks our suburban schools the ones that can whether the dehibilitating effects of poverty and parent apathy are failures then what must he think of our inner city schools.

This guy, take a deep breath Chris, this waste of space has done nothing to improve education. Instead he has endorsed policies that have hurt both children and schools. It’s beyond time for him to go.

Here is a petition you can sign if you agree.
