What a great job all these union teachers are doing. Kids can't even read and write and they're screaming about bargaining rights. They should be fired if they can't do their job period.


An estimated 82 percent of U.S. schools could be labeled as "failing" under the nation's No Child Left Behind Act this year, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday. The Department of Education estimates the number of schools not meeting targets will skyrocket from 37 to 82 percent in 2011 because states are toughening their standards to meet the requirements of the law. The schools will face sanctions ranging from offering tutoring to closing their doors.

It gets worse every year doesn't it? What happen to teaching kids to prepare for the future and so forth. I feel sad for my future kids since they may be on the way to the same systems that dumbs us all down. Way to go education system.

But this has been a plan f by the globalist through gradualism to dumb the education sysytem down. I think Norman Dodd said it.

same here. It feels like after school you end up forgetting everything. That isn't supposed to happen!

I mean the generation today take convenience and pleasure, over truth, determination, and true happiness, not just from schools, but from everyday life as well! It won't get better if the students do not know how failure feels.

I really believe the NCLB act should be immediately repealed.

Yet everyone is ignoring the gender/economic aspect of it all. Girls regardless of race or economic demograph are doing fine, but America's boy's that don't have economic privilege are failing regardless of race.

Think about it. 80-90% of all teachers in America are female. Most of those teachers went to college in the 80's and 90's. College's throughout the 80's and 90's stressed about the phony(most of the journalist's who picked up on the fake girl crisis of the 90's are in a mixture of denialism/apologetic for not double checking the AAUW faked study) girl crisis and how schools shortchange girls. + added all the other faked feminist statistics(every single feminist study has been proven to either by an outright fraud or severely distorted for "dramatic effect") about rape, wage gap and other feminist myths may have made millions of teachers at a subconscious level bigoted against males. Added to the fact that women are more likely to give favor to those like them led to the creation of an "all girls club" mentality in education.

Heck many feminist social engineers already acknowledge that Gen Y males are by an large a lost generation because of their policies aka persecution of males.

Probably a lot of factors are involved. Boring teachers with a stick up their butts, parents and boring teachers attacking the ones that do come up with a way to make learning fun and interesting, too many medicated kids, kids living off eating and drinking total junk.... Not to mention all the TV and video games, lack of exercise too...

I agree with you a 100% on this. I'm in my freshman year of college and Ive learned a lot more in my 1 1/2 semesters of college than I did in my four years of high school. Its a bloody joke, the only classes that I enjoyed where my AP Government and European history classes, the rest were totally boring. The teachers don't care cause they get paid regardless of how their students do. I was horrible in math and I never once had a teacher approach me and ask what was wrong, and now I'm in Calculus 2
So obviously I had the ability to do math.

Well the only classes I actually learn from are my AP classes. I have been in regular type classes before and trust me, the whole period is spent discussing random details that have nothing to do with learning the subject, if it's not busy work. I also come from a school that has been a D rated school, which suddenly changed to a B after the recall of statewide test scores due to "inaccuracy."

Lol in my senior year in highschool, I was actually teaching the math teacher shortcuts and tricks.... NY schools are pretty pathetic lmao. My senior year english class I spent sleeping, all we did was work in a 8th grade level vocab textbook, and read books I read back in 5th grade for fun.... I was so bored I offered to read an adult level novel every week and submit a report, instead of doing the stupid crap the teacher had planned. Of course no, you have to do what everyone else does. I finished the whole stupid vocab book in a week, then only was awake for the retarded review tests.

I swear people seem to forget what it was like when they were in school.

You can't make kids learn. Some are just dead set on F'ing off the whole time...I had 2 brothers that were that way. Like I stated...the material is there...but you can't FORCE them to do it. That's the job of the parents...and quite frankly many are doing a P poor job. I understand that much of it has to do with both parents has to work....but there are also people out there who don't do anything and simply don't give a damn.

If they just listened to Glen Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh...they'd have all the education a person could possibly need.


Thanks for educating us!!!

Ah...yes, 82% of schools are rated "failing" by an unfunded federal mandate...SHOCKING!

Oh well, look everyone, now that those greedy teachers are horrible at teaching those 82% of students, I guess we should just privatize, privatize, privatize...CHARTER SCHOOLS FOR ALL!

The private sector will surely do better than those public sector socialists, right? Plus, the tax payer will be off the hook...

Except that a charter school is a "middle man", if you will, between the provider of the service (the teacher) and the funder of the service (the tax payer).

What about those other private schools, they do well, right? Yeah, if you can afford college tuition for each year of your son or daughter's K-12 experience, I'm quite sure you will receive a boundless educational product, far superior in breadth and scope than most public schools.

However, anyone here who thinks that charter schools will do anything but increase their own profit and decrease the quality of education are living in a fantasy land.

Some of you may say, you're creating a slippery slope fallacy...

Oh yeah? Mark my words. Look at New Orleans and Michigan and consider Corrections as an analogous example.

To say that 82% of US schools are failing when the failing is the direct result of a BLOATED government that does nothing but no-bid contracts and imperial war.

This is mass insanity. Really, no one is getting this at all? Asleep at the wheel...

I HAVE ALWAYS FELT THAT STUDENTS PROGRESS IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE IQ OF THE TEACHER...

I GUESS THIS PROVES BEYOND A DOUBT THAT MOST TEACHERS ARE LIBERALS, AND MOST LIBERALS
ARE TRULY IMBECILES....

So, is the Department of Indoctrination admitting that they are not doing their jobs?

Jimmy Carter started this department and Ronald Reagan tried to shut it down but failed. Maybe it is time to really consider closing it now. Things worked a lot better when schools dictated what they would teach besides some person that may not even have kids telling all the states what they should or should not teach. All the DOE has done has created a blanket system that does not cover all the bases, except for indoctrination.

Wow, there are no other factors that attribute to student success? What about the environment that a student spends MOST of his day in, the "home"? Do parents play any part in their child's education? What about the work ethic of the individual student? I suppose it is very easy to blame the teacher when the teacher only sees the student in a 45 minute period of time out of a 24 hour day.
