Truth is no SIN wrote:
A nationwide epidemic of school closings and teacher firings has been underway for some time. It's concentrated chiefly in poor and minority communities, and the teachers let go are often experienced and committed classroom instructors, and likely to live in and near the communities they serve, and disproportionately black.

It's not an accident, or a reflection of changing demographics, or more educational choices suddenly becoming available to families in those areas. It's not due to greedy unionized teachers or the invisible hand of the marketplace or well-intentioned educational policies somehow gone awry.

The current wave of school closings is latest result of bipartisan educational policies which began with No Child Left Behind in 2001, and have kicked into overdrive under the Obama administration's Race To The Top. In Chicago, the home town of the president and his Secretary of Education, the percentage of black teachers has dropped from 45% in 1995 to 19% today. After winning a couple skirmishes in federal court over discriminatory firings in a few schools, teachers have now filed a citywide class action lawsuit alleging that the city's policy of school “turnarounds” and “transformations” is racially discriminatory because it's carried out mainly in black neighborhoods and the fired teachers are disproportionately black.
Liberals hate black.

Fact #1: Liberal Democrars founded the KKK.

Fact #2: Liberals created "child killing", i.e. abortio, to get rid of blacks. Her founder admitted it in the Supreme Court but the Liberal Media hide it under the rug of low information voters.

Right, but do any of those folks want to work that hard__I'm thinking probably not. Senators maybe, living off the name. That's a political dynasty that needs to end as does the Bush Group Inc.

Jeb's kid George IV iirc has moved to Texas to continue his political career, good kid, smart__well educated__handsome but brown, as in Mexicali brown which ain't gonna work in Florida which is much friendlier to Castilian types like Rubio, Martinez etc etc.

Liberal imploding right in front of our eyes!!!!

Lazy Ghetto liberals need to exercise or else loose welfare benefits!!!

I bet they were not counting with that!!!

Personal responsibility is not on the liberal vocabulary only forcing others to do what they think is best for them!!! A contradiction by default. That is why liberalism is imploding!!!

Some overweight Brits could find their welfare benefits cut if they don’t complete a physician-prescribed exercise regimen, according to a new series of public policy proposals being considered in the London area of Westminster.

The idea is part of a series of recommendations in a joint report issued by the Westminster Council and a British think tank, the Local Government Information Unit (LGiU). The proposals are intended to be part of a massive cost-savings plan for when local council governments control of more than $3.25 billion in public money that formerly went to Britain’s national health service for public health campaigns.

SACRAMENTO, Jan 10 (Reuters)- California's budget deficit is gone after years of financial troubles, Governor Jerry Brown said on Thursday, proposing a plan that raises spending on education and healthcare, boosting total expenditures by 5 percent.

Brown vowed to push back at legislators eager to raise spending quickly, restoring the billions of dollars to social services and other state functions that were cut in lean years.

"I am determined to avoid the fiscal mess that the last few governors had to deal with," Brown told reporters as he introduced the budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year beginning in July.

A second Republican governor has agreed to carry out an expansion of Medicaid under President Barack Obama's health care reform law. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez announced her plans Tuesday.

Martinez and Nevada's Gov. Brian Sandoval are the only Republican governors to date to support broadening Medicaid eligibility to anyone earning up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, which was $14,856 last year. In contrast, 10 other Republican governors have gone on record opposing a Medicaid expansion.
