Posted on 04/25/2014 4:12:55 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The Obama administration plans to use tens of millions in federal financial aid as leverage to reward teacher training programs that produce teachers who routinely raise student test scores and to drive the rest out of business. Education Secretary Arne Duncan will announce the revival of a push to regulate hundreds of teacher preparation programs Friday at a town hall meeting with White House policy director Cecilia Muñoz. He plans to release a draft regulation by summer and aims to enact it within a year.

Parents and school boards are PERFECTLY CAPABLE of handling children's education without Barack Obama or any federal bureaucrat.
The lyin’ king’s name and the word crack in the same sentence? Sounds right. When he can get it that is. Just like in his college days. If there were any college days. :>}
Most Democrat programs will end up foiling their stated intent.
America will only regain the might needed to dethrone the “lyin’ king” or his successors, if they supplicate to God. Nothing less will cause evil to budge.
aims to enact it within a year.”
this is to get them through Saul Alinsky 101 training first.
Who here believes we still live in a republic?
A republic of fools.
If people think public schools are bad now ...
One of our children struggled mightily with Math in seventh grade. The teacher was terrible, but there was nothing we or the school district could do about it.
She was a veteran teacher, a member of the NEA and Black. The students who couldn’t afford a tutor were simply stuck. That’s public school education in the USA today. Let’s see Obama fix those situations.
Lets see, US foreign policy is in shambles. Putin is aggressing like a reincarnated Hitler. Islamic Jihad is pulling the world towards war. Iran will shortly or already has the bomb. War looms between Israel and Syria, Israel and Iran, Israel and (fill in blank.) Turkey is becoming radicalized. The US economy could overheat and die at any moment. China is threatening Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, and (fill in blank.) What is Obama concerned with? Oh, education; one of the many things that is definitely not his job.

The key issue here is tens of millions of federal dollars.
Again, baraq will loot the treasury to reward his friends.
Our money will never make it to the educations system.
See Mexico for an example.
In the old days, my public school teachers actually had a degree in their subject matter.
Uh, the situation you described is Obama’s GOAL.
Perfect example of rule by Hegelian Dialectic.
My son had a very similar situation back in the early 90s, only it was a black English teacher, the only black person in the entire high school. He made the mistake early in the year of correcting her grammar. My son was a very good student but barely passed the class.
Just what to education system needs, more biased, communist training.
The reason the test scores are already sooooooo bad is that the federal gubmint already HAD their hands in the demise of the educational program in this country. (”I’m from the gubmint and we’re here to help you”.
The gumbint (in particular odumbo) needs to stay out of it all together.
That's why we are doomed; they won't budge in their support for liberalism run amuck.
Danged homonyms. I believe that's spelled "daze".
What is Obama saying, that progressive education mills are producing bad teachers?
only if it’s purple...
The only thing that Obama could REALLY DO is demand teacher unions to dissolve.
They are the ones keeping bad teachers in their jobs.
Guess he must be referring to his own incompetent teachers who taught him there are 58 states in America. In 2008 he said he had “already visited 57 states and only had one more to go”.
Or Michelle’s incompetent teachers who taught her that correct grammar is to say “me and Barack”.
Let’s hear it for Affirmative Action, else these yahoos would be shuckin’ and jivin’ in some third-rate rap recording studio instead of living the high life compliments of us.
Lets see Obama fix those situations.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking his definition of a fix here matches our definition of a fix. Our fix would produce better educated students, whereas the progressives’ fix would produce better indoctrinated students.
While I agree that the government would do a bang-up job at handling teacher training, I ALSO am aware that school boards and parents oftentimes do NOT have the kids’ education as a foremost priority. Being a teacher myself, I am exposed to the lack of effort that both of the aforementioned are just as guilty of as said teachers.
