Another Obama failure

If you haven’t read this story yet, it’s a kill. Due to low enrollment, a NJ elementary school named after TheOne will be closing it’s doors this summer.

At the time that the school acquired its new name, [in 2010] administrators took a lot of flak for ostensibly focusing on the name change instead of the plight of its students. But the city resident behind the movement, Myra Campbell, believed it would “send a subliminal message” to the students.

A subliminal message? How about they send a clear message about, oh say,  LEARNING? Hello… anybody in there? How about we teach these kids how to read, write and do simple math, in real easy to understand language?

Subliminal messaging is part of any indoctrination process, by the way.

I have an even better idea. How about we dismantle the Department of Education this  year and let the parents and citizens of a given district determine their OWN needs and requirements and finance it themselves? One thing that will be made evident in that scenario is how important the education of their children really is. Why should I be made responsible for the education of kids whose parents don’t give a damn themselves? I’m more than happy to pay taxes for the education of kids in my district, where parents and even I, have a say in what they do, read and learn. But I really don’t like paying for failing schools and teachers in Phoenix or L.A. or Chicago and where the unions and federal bureaucrats control the indoctrination and not the education of our kids.

Call me crazy that way…

    It’s kind of poetic justice that a school named after Obama is closing because it has failed. Count me in on agreeing that the Dept. of Education be eliminated. One of several regulatory departments that the federal government has no constitutional basis for.

    I agree with you .
    Eliminate the NEA entirely.
    This country started with virtually nothing, and now we see what has been imposed upon us.
    Another establishment that should be eliminated is the other NEA.
    National Endowment for the Arts.
    It’s so confusing for the taxpayers to determine where the taxes should go.
    The taxpayers that are confused on these specific issues should refrain from going to the polling booths.
    It will be a waste of their time, although, many have no concept of time.

      “It’s so confusing for the taxpayers to determine where the taxes should go” – I had a thought about this several years ago that I’d like to share with you. You know how, when you are preparing your taxes, you are asked if you’d like to contribute to the presidential race? I always say no. But, what if we had the opportunity to actually say where we want some of our taxes to be used? For example I would say that I want mine to go to National Defense. Wouldn’t that be great if we personally could determine at least part of where our payment goes?
