DLA For Sunday 082811

$92.858 Billion for NOTHING!

Hey folks,

I was only half joking Friday, but the more I think about it, the more it actually makes sense. He said it. It's the Truth. Why do we need to continue to spend $92.858 Billion Dollars? According to the Head of the Department, $92.858 Billion for NOTHING!

His own words:

“And the best ideas, I've always said, in education are never going to come from me or frankly from anyone else in Washington. They’re always going to come from great teachers, great principals at the local level. We want to hold them accountable, but give them lots more room to move and to do the right thing for the children in their community where they know best what those children and what the community need.”
No good Ideas are going to come from some Bureaucrat sitting in an Office in Washington. Great Teachers and Great Principals, working with Parents at Local Levels KNOW WHAT IS BEST for THEIR Children. If the Federal Government got out of the way, it would be so much better for the Kids.

Again, look at Wisconsin. Here a Governor looked at this situation. He found Bad Teachers getting a free ride. He found Schools that were fiscally upside down. He found Schools being held Hostage by Union Thugs. The most important thing he found, was the Schools were FAILING the only reason the even exist. The Kids. He said ENOUGH!

Together with the Republicans that REFUSED to Compromise, REFUSED to be threatened. REFUSED to back down from what they KNEW is the RIGHT thing to do, they fixed the problem. No more free rides for bad Teachers. Teachers that Perform well, will be PAID WELL. A Budget that is not only Balanced, but some looking at Surpluses, which IS being put back into the Schools, instead of lining pockets of Union Bosses and Politicians. Back into the Schools for Smaller Class sizes. MORE Teachers. More Supplies. ETC.

Now we have the Head, the U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan Speaking the TRUTH! Again, he said this.

“And the best ideas, I've always said, in education are never going to come from me or frankly from anyone else in Washington. They’re always going to come from great teachers, great principals at the local level. We want to hold them accountable, but give them lots more room to move and to do the right thing for the children in their community where they know best what those children and what the community need.”
You are SO right Mr. Duncan. Congratulations, you ARE the Winner of the Display of Logic Award for today, Sunday, August 28, 2011. Any good idea's to "Rid ourselves" of this over cost, pointless, Government entity? Just curious.
