How Long Will Bill and the Other Billionaires Ignore the 25% Child Poverty Rate?

Tonight 60 Minutes tells a story that will make you cry, and then hopefully it will make you determined to spit in the faces of Arne Duncan and Bill Gates.

The United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI) joined with 19 national organizations in calling for all workers to unite against the efforts of governors and legislators to abolish collective bargaining while putting public safety at risk, disrupting the educational process, and punishing teachers for exercising their rights in opposing this approach to fiscal stability.

A Bold Education Experiment: What We Should Learn From China

But as I have written on this site and in my book, Catching Up or Leading the Way, the glorification of China’s education is ill founded and attention ...

Scott Walker has lost the thread in Wisconsin. This documenting of 20 lies he’s told in the past couple weeks is going viral. A new poll from a conservative-leaning think tank in Wisconsin shows that voters want Walker to compromise by a 2-1 margin. Commentators from across the political spectrum have come to the conclusion that Walker is sunk, and not just in the near term.

Should Gov. Walker accomplish his goal, he will have stoked a level of union anger that I very much suspect will become a key driver in an Obama victory in 2012. He will also have prompted the nation’s unions to work together for a common objective– a feat that would have seemed
