Well i'd say that King Hussein's comments and the trickery that he's used about education reform were smoke and mirrors.If the KING was a true leader he would have already spoke out against the teacher strike and suggest they return to work,no he refuses to do so because he will lose union support.To say this is a local issue not a federal issue is pure bull**** the DOE is funded by the federal Gov. more than anyother nation in the world yet we still rank among the worst education systems in the world.Apparently the kids are the losers in all of this and these mafia unions and greedy ass teachers could care less about future generations.As far as Romney goes when he left as Gov his state ranked #1 in the nation in schools so he must know a little about education unlike the fraud n chief who is more worried votes than educating children.
