"This Is ARE Story": Why Johnny canít read. Or spell. Or connect the dots.
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-12-2014 | MOTUS

Today’s reflection:

Can you connect the dots in the three stories below? I’ve provided some hints along the way.

Story #1:

Paul Robeson High School’s 2014 prom theme: “This is Are Story.” Drafted by prom committee, reviewed and approved by their TA (teacher advisor).

Story #2:

LOS ANGELES—A California judge declared the state's strong teacher-tenure laws unconstitutional in a rebuke that promises to spur similar challenges around the country.

The student plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the state and two teachers unions successfully argued that statutes protecting teacher tenure, dismissal procedures and "last-in, first-out" layoff policies serve more often to keep ineffective instructors in the schools—hurting students' chances to succeed.

On second thought, perhaps that Prom program slogan was written four the students by won of there teechurs:

SAN FRANCISCO: "I am confident that the Court of Appeal will reverse this decision," said James Finberg, lead attorney for both the California Teachers Association and the California Federation of Teachers. "Having the security that you won't be fired without cause is one of the things that makes teaching an attractive profession."

Teachers protesting Governor Walker’s unreasonable demands during “negotiatins;”

Story #3:

According to the latest Reuters Poll: Obama’s Approval Rating is 37.5%…and falling.

Who, you ask, are the 37.5% who still think BHO is competent at his job? Where do they come from? If you’ve been paying close attention to the clues - and haven’t attended public school anytime in the past 30 years or so - you’ve probably already connected the dots. If not, here are a few final clues:

how do you spell school2How many ways can you misspell school? If your answer is “more than won,” thank a teacher.

No more cursive either. A lot of high school seniors can’t even write no less read. Have you ever looked at their so-called signatures?

So by all means lets ship millions of kids who can't speak English in. That's sure to help. Oh wait we have several generations of "Amish" that can't speak English either.

How can they learn anything if they can't even speak English? Some "Amish" the other day in some news article. "All I know, it ain't come from they house". Really?

EVERY “Johnny” that I know can read.

The made-up names, however... well, whatever.

My wife is teaching a GRADUATE class and her students, preparing to get their master’s degree, have writing skills that in my day wouldn’t get them through high school.

If that's the way the headline read, it's adorable.

"Kentucky Education Association sends book with state's name misspelled to juniors"

So the newspaper editor made it sound like they misspelled "Kentucky" to "juniors".

That's even worse than spelling it "Kentucy".
