“It’s poverty, stupid….”

It is maddening. Obama and Duncan continue to roll out the construct of Race to the Top and common core testing as an educational solution whose time has come….when “it is poverty, stupid”

Leaders in the field, qualified and respected  educators, peer reviewed research, educator field experience …all point to inequity and poverty as being at the core,  of miseducation and/or the floundering of students.

Whose interests is Obama serving ?  I mean we should all know that he replaced Linda Darling Hammond, the educator … with Arne Duncan, the basketball buddy soon after election in what feels like a bait and switch move right after elections….

Read about this from Diane Ravitch..a leader in education…
