‘No Child’ Law Whittled Down by White House

In just five months, the Obama administration has freed schools in more than half the nation from central provisions of the No Child Left Behind education law, raising the question of whether the decade-old federal program has been essentially nullified.

Under obama.

From the Huffington post:
Since since the end of the recession three years ago, 300,000 educators have lost their jobs -- 7,000 in the last month alone, according to a report the White House released Saturday, titled "Investing in Our Future: Returning Teachers to the Classroom." To remain financially solvent, 292 school districts took drastic measures that include a four-day school week and cutting full-day kindergarten. Pittsburgh laid off 280 teachers, the report said. Cleveland cut teachers and programs in music, art and gym.

The massive layoffs have increased the student-teacher ratio, reversing a long trend. After years of having more teachers for each student, the national ratio of students to teachers increased by 4.6 percent from 2008 to 2010. It's now 16 students per teacher, where it was in 2000. While the student-teacher ratio is not the same as class size because it includes non-classroom teachers, the class size trend is bound to look the same, senior administration officials pointed out on a Friday call with reporters.

All under obama.

What part of the SUPREME COURT ruling in favor of gun control laws do you not understand?
Included Scalia- the most "nut friendly"- said are limitations on "bear arms", that SCOTUS would have to decide what they are- not vigilante Nancy boys like yourself, that owning a gun is may be legal, owning a cannon is not. SCALIA said there are firearms that cause great harm, and he would have to make a call based on what were understood limitations at the time of the Founders when he sees such a case.
Now, Nancy: I think that Scalia is in a better position to make such a call, as are the other eight.
"...that owning a gun is may be legal, owning a cannon is not."

Owning a cannon is "NOT legal"...says who..?

"SCALIA said there are firearms that cause great harm, and he would have to make a call based on what were understood limitations at the time of the Founders when he sees such a case."

I'm glad to see you say that...because one statement already made is that the 2nd Amendment covers those arms used by the militia...you think maybe those would include those so called "assault weapons"...?...I do.

"It is entirely clear that the Court’s basis for saying that the Second Amendment did not apply was not that the defendants were “bear[ing] arms” not “for ... military purposes” but for “nonmilitary use,” post, at 2. Rather, it was that the type of weapon at issue was not eligible for Second Amendment protection:“In the absence of any evidence tending to show that the possession or use of a [short barreled shotgun] at this time has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia, we cannot say that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear such an instrument.” 307 U. S., at 178 (emphasis added).“Certainly,” the Court continued,“it is not within judicial notice that this weapon is any part of the ordinary military equipment or that its use could contribute to the common defense.” Ibid. Beyond that, the opinion provided no explanation of the content of the right."

"United States v. Miller, 307 U. S. 174, does not limit the right to keep and bear arms to militia purposes, but rather limits the type of weapon to which the right applies to those used by the militia, i.e., those in common use for lawful purposes."

It’s perfectly legal to own a cannon. It’s less paperwork to buy a canon than a 17.9” shotgun.

So many choices
http://www.cannonsuperstore.com/

Do you ever research the bullshit you spout? Show evidence of what you claim. Scalia does indeed support some restrictions. He does indeed support the suspension of second amendment rights for convicted felons.

The entire statement read as follows

Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons.

You probably are more clever than some, we’ll have to find those few to test that theory.

You’re about as dumb as a box of rocks. You’re dishonest and make crap up as you go. Then when called on that crap you reply with some sort of childish sexual reference.

And Romney has already said it will get worse under him as he cuts education dollars at the federal level. You have a point or your usual pointlessness.
