Education Nation

Lots has been posted over the yesterday and today about “Education Nation”. That is the, the federal government’s emphasis on education. This is an interesting post on how the issue of poverty was glossed over and ignored. Add this article about Snooki and education, and, well, you’ve got a few things to think about.(Quote: When we talk about teachers, and we try to lay all the blame on them and we say, ‘why can’t that teacher get that kid’s score up,’ watch Jersey Shore. Watch it. And tell me what teacher could possibly have reached anyone of them, to get any one of their scores up, in any subject.)
