    And it's all because of the superiority of gubmint schools in these states, right?

    Can't go around giving the credit to the parents and students, when we have a political angle to exploit, can we?

    Is it? Do you have evidence?

    Why not? Is it because Republicans have never mixed politics and education or exploited the state of an education system for gain, and hence it would be wrong for lefties to do the same?

    I just wanna make sure I get the rules straight:

    1) When something good happens in a Red state, its the right's fault
    2) When something bad happens in a blue state, its the left's fault
    3) When something good happens in a blue state, it has nothing to do with politics
    4) When something bad happens in a red state, it has nothing to do with politics.



    Is that about right?

    Or you could just have an independent thought enter into your head and check your premises.

    I don't see California on the list and don't make me laugh about the poor showing in every category in Wahiington D.C. schools (where does Obama send his kids?). What do we need the US Dept. of Ed. for? Bragging rights for North East schools? You might consider the demographics also. These areas are very White aren't they?
