Is Our Children Learning?

Education Law Leaves Children Behind; Every Single State Fails Teacher Test
Not a single state will have a highly qualified teacher in every core class this school year as promised by President Bush's education law. Nine states along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico face penalties.

The Department of Education on Friday ordered every state to explain how it will have 100 percent of its core teachers qualified -- belatedly -- in the 2006-07 school year.

In the meantime, some states face the loss of federal aid because they didn't make enough effort to comply on time, officials said.

THIS is why we have a whole nation of mouthbreathing cretins who have no respect for themselves or anyone else, and that's who is going to inherit the country.
THIS is why misogynistic rap is preferred to music that actually has a point beyond 40's, blunts, bitches, and bling.
THIS is what happens when you dumbass heterosexuals focus attention on bullshit that totally does not matter instead of on whether or not your children are afforded a decent education instead of a substandard one.
THIS is why boys will suck their own brains out through a motherfucking video game and spend hours in front of a TV rather than read a book.
THIS is why girls aspire to be Paris Hilton and look to her as a role model.
THIS is why we ALL fail.

I am so far beyond disgusted right now that I'm about to swallow my own goddamned tongue.
