29. Democrats want

To make sure that the blind student has a reader available so that they can take the test.

To make sure that the African American student doesn't start with a negative 10 points in some places in Mississippi and elsewhere.

To make sure that the poor rural child who doesn't have enough to eat for breakfast will get a good lunch so that they won't space out in the middle of the test.

To make sure that the daughter of the undocumented worker who gets 130 points has a fair chance to become a citizen and become a doctor so she can treat your grandchildren.

To make sure that the gay kid in the back doesn't think about he is abnormal but concentrates on his test and goes on to become a great scientist and write the books that you will be using in your classroom.

To make sure that the text books that are used in your class are not determined by a bunch of uneducated red necks in Texas who don't really understand what is in the Bible but insist that their version of the creation story replaces science.

and finally

Democrats want to continue to invest in education and teachers so that we get better educated teachers who are not tempted to use silly syllogisms with a counterfeit premisethat is completely irrelevant and rather encourage all of their students to continue to learn and grow so that all become winners and reach their potential and the highest score possible.
