My “Tip of the Cap” Award goes to the 500+ parents of Snohomish County in Washington State who opted their kids out of the state test.
My “Ignorance Out Loud” Award goes to Mitt Romney whose speech could be summed by saying he blames the teachers’ unions for everything.
The “Sell Out” Award goes to the League of Education Voters (backed/supported by Stand For Children, ALEC, the Broad Group, etc.) who are pushing for charter schools despite Washington State voting them down three times.
The “Just Keep Losing” Award goes to Washington State who has lost another case, this time at the Supreme Court level in the NEWS lawsuit (the state is arguing against education being the “paramount duty…to make ample ample provision for the education of all children” in the state).
