Obama On Education ...

 
"It's not just the winner of the Super Bowl,
but the science fair."

"We want to reward good teachers
and stop making excuses for bad ones."

SCATS ~~ Gee, these messages sound a lot like past BLOG topics!

Maybe he is following you on facebook? Imitation is the greatest form of compliment. You are absolutely right this blog has carried that same message more than once and in almost those same words although math team may have been mentioned.

With the prez saying we need to spend more on education and the govenor saying we spend too much it could be some interesting times coming especially seeing as both entities are out of money.
Forget all this he## we'll just borrow some more$$$.

Most of us stopped making excuses for the bad ones a long time ago. We just want them out of the system. Period!

I think it IS time we give the winners of science contests the same (or more) viz-a-viz the football or basketball "hero" who scores at the buzzer. Maybe we can get on the right track and focus on education again. I wonder how many schools have artificial turf or lighted sports fields in China. Probably fewer than the umber that have high-speed internet!

To 10:03AM ~~ Well, Walts was trying to deal with that issue. Sadly, MD got rewarded for her behavior and Walts got away with the loot!

To 11:30AM ~~ I think we owe them much more! They are in school to learn, not to score.
