GOVT JOB CREATION AND HOW YOUR KID GOT SO STUPID

Do you understand what just took place between Obama and General McChrystal? Do you have the slightest inkling as to what's happening to our nation politically, economically, culturally? Do you even care? If not, it might be because you were educated in the public school system. In fact, it could be said that much of what ails this once great nation is the result of the education our public school system has produced over the last four decades.


Big Government's Andrew J. Coulson
takes a look at our education system, contrasting employment creation within the system and student test score performance over four decades. When it comes to student performance, you'll note the ROI is a fail. On the other hand, the NEA must be very pleased with the job they've done... for themselves. Coulson's presentation reminded me of a Churchill quote:

"However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results."

Coulson's article also reminded me of this short video.
