Perhaps our government should keep that prison in Cuba and put the croks in walstreet in it.

Ronald Reagon said the government is our problem. That statment just goes to show the mind set of the republican party.

I understand the republicans are attempting to keep Obama from appropiating more money for education. An uneducated citizenry is much eazer to control by the well healed.

Clarence, you don't think government is a problem? Neither did many in Russia as they ushered in Socialism.
A free society is that ;free.
Also if money is the answer to education why then does Illinois have one of the poorest education systems when the Democrats have thrown money at it for decades?
The answer is (what is done with the money).
I believe the Republicans had it correct when they felt teachers should be graded as well.
In the real world (unless you're union), a poor employee is fired. In the education world they just pass the student and make it someone else's problem.
What are you smoking?
