That hit a nerve. Now I know that a few of you liberals are educators. I wonder where?

Eeeya. And on the other side of that coin is;
"The Education Action Group Foundation claims to be a group of citizens and school board leaders who are public school advocates. A closer look reveals a broad range of far-right-wing political connections and a decidedly anti-union and anti-public schools agenda.

EAG incorporator Eric Doster and Vice President Kyle Olson have ties to anti-public education groups including the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and the Great Lakes Education Project Political Action Committee. These groups have devoted years of effort and extensive financial resources supporting issues and candidates who favor private school vouchers, privatization of public school employees, and the end to unions representing working people.

"None of EAG’s employees have any teaching experience except for writer Ben Velderman, who failed to survive his probationary period, teaching only 2 years in Zeeland, Michigan. Nevertheless, they present themselves as education experts, managing to recommend any solution to perceived problems so long as it includes blaming unions."

Yeah sure, it is a right-wing organization. So? We see how well public education is doing in teaching our kids. Private and charter schools are hands down the better choice. The test results prove it. Oh and by the way, private schools and charters would never indoctrinate children into communist ideology. That was the whole point of the post.

Did you read the article Boob? They're not forcing children to read Ayn Rand, it's a suggestion. And for the life of me, how can you compare a great author on capitalism to communist indoctrination? We might be a little red in the brain huh?

Buy you wingnuts will believe just about anything if it comes from a wingnut blog, won't you?

And Dr X, you don't have the faintest clue about what "communism" is, or indeed the actual definition of the word. Please go back to your mom's basement and lock the door behind you.
