Re: Marsha's Rant- You Go, GIrl!!!

Hey, Marsha!!
Oh how I agree with you! And I can tell you FIRSTHAND that the insipid "No
Children Left Behind" idea is a BIGTIME failure!!!
I teach in the inner city of Chicago, and there are plenty of kids left
behind, believe me!!
I suppose W doesn't understand why people can't live on inherited money
like he does...
Now he goes after Kerry because Kerry didn't bleed enough in Vet Nam?!!?
This is at the point of ridiculousness!!!! This is a waste of the American
voter's time --it is pathetic!
We want to know their plans about the Economy, the War in Iraq, Social
Security (has Greenspan gone senile?), Education, Out-Sourcing, JOBS, etc. etc.
etc. etc.
Can we STOP the runaway spending that the Congress and this administration
is responsible for? Can they put their money where their mouth is and instead
of these obnoxious catch-phrases like "No Children Left Behind"-- put some
cash in the schools and stop cutting programs like "Head-Start" (it happened
in Chicago right after Bush stated he was the "Education president").
Wish I were in NYC now -- protesting, that is!!
