One correction. He wants more charter schools but he wants them all to be
brick and mortar and they haven't to jump thru more hoops than regular brick
and mortar. He is fighting with the NEA over this but, in states such as
CA, the NEA won't be fighting because the state made teachers requirements
the same for charters as "regular" schools.
Anyone ever do the bubble charts or play 6 Degrees From Kevin Bacon. It is
really interesting to do with Teflon.
Valerie what's her name who he just made counsel for women and girls. Well,
long story short, her mother was one of the founders of the Erickson
Institute. Valerie hired Michelle before she was an Obama to work for
Daley. Ayers foundation funded the Erickson Institute. The Obama girls
went to the Lab school at the University that is run by the Erickson
Institute. Valerie was Chairman of the Board at the University medical
school when Michelle was hired and o.k.'d the $200,000/yr raise that
Michelle got after Teflon got the University the $9 mill. And, he was
probably telling the truth when he said the Michelle didn't ask him to do
it. I'm sure it was Valerie and her mother that did the asking!
At anyrate, that cluster . . . is all about the government controlling her
children from birth to death! Read Ayers writings on education.
So, we have come full circle from how public education started in this
country where the rich got hold of the Prussian method and ran with it.
We're right back to total control.
