I cannot believe that I am reading this correctly, but then I have to assume that the teacher's union finds this to be perfectly sound policy. After all, we have lowered (actually more like removed) the qualifications to remain a teacher. It only makes sense to bring the passing grade level down to their level.....correct?
The Marco Island Academy is the answer for those of you who wish to provide their children with a better education and the potential of going on to better colleges. Now that comment will stir the crazies on this site, but only because it is simply the truth. READ the story above AGAIN. So sad.
We do not need...no, better yet, we cannot afford the Dept. of Education or teacher's unions. Public service should NEVER been allowed to bargain collectively. NEVER. Why not prisoner's unions? How about the military? Even the socialist Roosevelt understood this and did not allow it.
Next month's recall election in Wisconsin will tell us all if there is any hope for freedom in America. I am sure that our founders are watching from above. If Walker loses, we might as well join the EU.
