    by  • April 15, 2009

Either way, I’m interested in...

    530 employees in Gov. Strickland’s Department of Education, and they still have to outsource. I look forward to seeing the Guv’s plan for scaling back this Department, since they’re clearly not necessary. The Strickland administration paid a Columbus attorney nearly $50,000 to help it draft the governor’s new school-funding plan. The state Office of...

    The blogosphere is up in arms this morning, and rightly so, about a new report released from the Department of Homeland Security. The report is full of inflammatory statements, including: Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of...

    In early March, the NEA sent a letter to President Obama stating the following: We are now concerned about an ongoing threat to public education in the District of Columbia and hope that you will use your voice to help eliminate this threat.

    My side is pretty new to this whole ‘protesting’ thing. We’re trying to gather whatever advice we can do as well as you all did during the past eight years. Suggestions already made by some cohorts include: Postpone college classes so professors can attend “Hey Hey! Ho Ho! IQ points have got to go!”...

    Enough already.
