I watched the Republican convention tonight and it was inspiring- all about all the freedom we needed in our economy and in our lives. How AMERICAN PEOPLE build businesses and follow their dreams. But when it gets to education they just don't get it. I could see myself standing outside with a group of my compatriots in these education wars singing "ALL WE ARE SAYING IS GIVE FREEDOM A CHANCE!!" I found myself yelling at the television as Jeb Bush gave his speech- so obviously his job application for Secretary of Education. Here's the thing Jeb- THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS NO BUSINESS HAVING A SECRETARY OF EDUCATION- OR A DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION- AT ALL!!!
PLEASE RELEASE US LET US GO!! This is OUR country. These are OUR children! We are not a bunch of incompetent fools that need to be MANAGED by the Federal government. Our children are not YOUR children to be shaped for your global economy. They don't live to work for you.FREEDOM works in schools, look at the KIPP academy and so many others-why won't they let us go!! BREAK THESE CHAINS GOVERNOR ROMNEY!!! School choice is no school choice at all when you have a Common Core Curriculum and federally funded tests!!!
There is no freedom at all when David Coleman, the architect of Common Core, is appointed president of the Scholastic Achievement Test board,so that he can make the tests for college entrance compatible to his Common Core that he developed behind closed doors!
This country is screaming for its' freedom and the schools are being left out of the equation! We don't want you to do anything about schools Mr. Romney, it's not your business or your job. Like in the economy- get out of the way and let freedom work. Give the states back their money to use for vouchers and CLOSE THE ILLEGAL FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION!!
I envision a world where schools are thriving in a world of competition and freedom. A world where all schools are free to be successful like the KIPP academy. Schools of all kinds and stripes from Montessori to e-learning and everything in between. Those that thrive will continue and lead, those that do not will close because they won't have enough students- just as in the business world. Colleges will compete for education students by providing training for the competitive school systems that demand only the best. Curriculum companies will respond to the needs of these schools and their parents and teachers.
WHY CAN'T YOU GET THIS MR.ROMNEY?? SCHOOLS NEED FREEDOM TO WORK AND THRIVE JUST LIKE BUSINESSES DO. PLEASE DISAPPOINT MR JEB BUSH WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT EDUCATION AND ELIMINATE THE JOB HE IS APPLYING FOR. LET OUR SCHOOLS GO!!!
