3. Ah, yes, the ongoing destruction of our system of public education...

I find it distressing that so many "Democrats" fail to see what's happening to public education. Having been involved during the beginnings of this deliberate assault, I can tell you that programs to 'prepare' new teachers are woefully inadequate, and school administrators are being routinely 'encouraged' to hire 'highly qualified' teachers -- which means TFA candidates or their equivalent.

(BTW, I have given one of my fave expressions to several students to see if their instructors can come up with the solution(s). To date, not a single math teacher has been able to solve this equation:

2X^4 = 16X

Our younglings cannot play math. They cannot read. They cannot think critically... just what the corporate megalomaniacs have wanted all along.
