    I agree with you more than you know, I guess.
    I do recall Ruth though, cause she's such a tiny, concentrated bundle of brains and balls. And Clarence Thomas cuz you know....the pubic hair on his Coke.

    Teacher's unions and advisory committees have direct control of the curriculum.

    Do you think Republican governors would insist upon multiculturalism and diversity training in lieu of American History? :auiqs.jpg:

    There you go again! Unions have zero input into the curriculum.

    Why are you so ignorant to repeat disproven talking points?

    Unions influence the committees that set curriculum.

    No they do not! Why are you so determined to lie? You must be a closet libtard.

    If you wonder why other countries look down their noses at us, this is one reason. Another reason is coverage from CNN International.

    Its like mental midget wrestling.

    The Governors have a very large role in determining what education our students receive. They have roles in:

    Setting the funding
    Setting the funding mechanisms
    Setting the requirements at the State level
    Determining the teacher qualifications

    Then in higher education they have another role:

    The locations and number of colleges the state supports
    The amount of money available for loans and grants
    The salaries paid to the faculty

    These are just the most obvious points where the 30+ GOP governors have their fingerprints all over the education system.

    And, oh yeah, the same voters who elect these folks also elect the local superintendent and the local school board. Unless you’re going to make the lame assed argument that somehow the people vote for Republicans at the State level and democrats at the local level; you have to agree that the local boards/districts also reflect the red state values which, of course, are Anti-Education. But Katy ISD (in Texas of course) did find $3.5 Million Dollars…Not for books or teachers or buses or buildings…Sports Uniforms:

    $700,000 a year on apparel. Red state values.

    Pardon me, but what school district were you a teacher in? I served in 8 over 20 years. I think I know the difference in curriculum and standards, which you obviously are clueless about. Unions have zero input. NONE!
