Education Sinkhole

Here's a story of a $6B program--an unholy spawn of No Child Left Behind--to improve reading skills among first graders. Guess what? It doesn't work. What's most disturbing are the remarks of the Department of Education researcher who did the study--who like most in the modern liberal redoubt of elementary education--believes that the program needs to be "improved". No, the program needs to be canceled.

Didn't The One tell us to read to our children? Might that save us about 6 billion?

Don't worry, CW, The One is reading books about FDR and Lincoln and said he's willing to "experiment" to try to get things right in America. How about "experimenting" with fiscal conservatism?

anon 1 & 2, slow down for those of us not in-the-know: Who is "the One"? Running through the names of those who have been pushing the NCLB (I agree with CW, this is a rotten-to-the-core program that needs to be canceled and replaced wholesale, not 'improved'), but no one's standing out as so deserving.

Anon 3, believe your namesakes 1 and 2 are referring to our Divine Savior, the Annointed One, the President Elect. I have a better recommendation than killing this program. Let's kill the entire department of education.
