More from Moore on NCLB

Paul Moore Comment on WaPo article:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/12/14/AR2008121401924.html

NCLB is the evil spawn of the globalization of our economy. That process is at the very foundation of business model for schools, charters, vouchers, data driven instruction, merit pay, standardized testing, and most perversely of all, paying students to consume the corporate version of knowledge. It was the reason the Business Roundtable and Bill Gates were so instrumental in getting this absurd and perverse legislation passed. The CEO's wanted a profit making private school system. In the new economy there would be Wal Mart and security guard jobs or the military for the kids that used to go to public schools.

These Reagan revolutionaries had a good run, in fact their campaign appeared ready to bear its bitter fruit. They had public school system wreckers like Michelle Rhee in place. Just then their rationale for being, their precious global economy, crashed! Why in just the past month they have had to do $326 billion CPR on Citigroup and scrambled to rescue the Big Three. Their pride and joy is on fire. It was supposed to be immutable. It was eternal! Now that attitude's all
gone. There's only panic now.

Any talk of NCLB is prayer said over a corpse.

The great transition is coming!

  1. We need to go get the bailout package and make sure it's driven from the bottom up for Public Education ! Hurry up before they sick us with sheep wool, rum,wooden arrows,bike trails and race track repairs. Time out and the principles need a budget to run their business. AYP penalities connected to these flawed standardized tests? No !Equality and equalize ! John F. Kennedy executive order !Justice for the advantaged and disadvantaged ! Where is the oversight for these testing corporations ? Hoist the lines and cut off their wind as the reformer ships called privatization sail in."Paid Paradise Put Up A Parking Lot !" Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone." Closing Public School buildings and selling them to developers or subcontracted for profit companies.Public Transparancy and Accountability ! Oppose the Abolishment Statute DC code & 1-624-08 and pray declartory relief. Duck and TAC ! Publish your school system audit for transparancy reformer ships !What's going on with the ship docking called Renaissance 2010? A privatization scheme for creating a market in public education ? No wake and that ship is leaning right ! Balance fair interests and equalize ! Do we now have guide lines per the courts to delineate tenure provisions with radical Rhee reform ? Race you to the Washington Monument with 1.4 million teachers plus in Public Education with a fire truck and a marching band ! End the mandates on NCLB,PL 107-110 ! It's not working and sinking ! Get your life jacket and get on the raft! Legitmate claim of entitlement to job tenure ? 408 US 593,602 (1972) Looks like conflicting standards of review with the privatization ships docking.Public Education answers not to the private good but to the demands of a democratic society. Please stop the dismantling of democratically elected local school officials. Town Mouse Meets The Country Mouse ! We see you city folks up there and don't bring all that radical political socialism vs decentralization road rage here. Get your boots on and saddle up and we're riding into that DC city ! "Santa Done Got Hip" Louis Armstrong to ya ! "We will change the face of education in this country." Rhee quote ! Think ya better publish an audit for tax payers first and stabalize building operations with support and resources reformer ships and list your non-profits and corporate interests on one page ! To scattered ! Skunk=Cheat=algonquian orgin=omnivorous black and white on the loose ! Bubble that and oppose Rhee's contractual proposal contractual terms of agreement ! Hit it Roudolph ! Next stop ! Santa cut loose a skunk on that teacher contract and these young political whippie,snappers better get in there and help us fight !When you grow up,do you want Public Education in America ? Who's covering the educational tax credits and philanthropy ed.tax ? Don't fall asleep at the switch and wake up !Hooray for the 14th Amendment and democracy in America !
