... Education Secretary Arne Duncan called Hurricane Katrina "the best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans" because it forced the community to take steps to improve low-performing public schools, according to excerpts from a television interview made public Friday.
Yes, he did say it. As reported in The Washington Post, Duncan's interview on "Washington Watch With Roland Martin" was scheduled to air Sunday on TV One.
I guess we need Hurricane Katrina's in every state of the union as far as this color aroused bigot is concerned.
The excerpts quoted an exchange between Duncan and Martin about the effect of the 2005 hurricane on the city's schools.
Martin was quoted as saying: "What's amazing is New Orleans was devastated because of Hurricane Katrina, but because everything was wiped out, in essence, you are building from ground zero to change the dynamics of education in that city."
Duncan was quoted as replying: "It's a fascinating one. I spent a lot of time in New Orleans, and this is a tough thing to say, but let me be really honest. I think the best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans was Hurricane Katrina. That education system was a disaster, and it took Hurricane Katrina to wake up the community to say that 'we have to do better.' And the progress that they've made in four years since the hurricane is unbelievable. They have a chance to create a phenomenal school district. Long way to go, but that -- that city was not serious about its education. Those children were being desperately underserved prior, and the amount of progress and the amount of reform we've seen in a short amount of time has been absolutely amazing." Let's talk about Barack Obama's Education plans tonight on the slugfest. "If you can handle the truth."
Hear Alice Linahan talk about the powerful press conference with some of the most prominent Anti-Common Core leaders from across the country. Thank you to Dr. Sandra Stotsky, Dr. James Milgram, Jane Robbins, Cathie Adams, Glyn Wright, Rep. Bill Zedler, Sarah Perry, and MerryLynn Gerstenschlager. They took a stand to protect American Children in the classroom! Get a glimpse of the incredible counter event they had against the National PTA whose keynote speaker, Arne Duncan, serves as the whip to make sure Common Core is felt across the land.
What happens when parents no longer have any say on what is being taught the children in school. What happens when children are so confused that they can no longer trust their parents authority. What happens when children are forced to listen to the definition of who they are from the mouths of those being forced to indoctrinate them? What happens to America when their children no longer believes in the Bible? What happens when evil becomes known as good? To an unbeliever these questions may not be important. But to a believer it can mean an eternity.
Why are parents irate about Common Core. What is the problem with the new AP US History. What happens when a generation forgets heroes like the Founding Fathers, Heroes of World War II , Martin Luther King Jr. etc.? Get informed and do something ABOUT THE NATIONALIZED EDUCATION THAT IS CHANGING AMERICA THROUGH THE MINDS OF CHILDREN.
August 11, 2010 at the Bullying Prevention National Summit, US State Secretary of Education Arne Duncan made the statement, “Victims of ‘bullying’ are ‘TattleTales.’”
Listen to the stories of 10 “TattleTales” who tell their stories of being victims of “bullying” by American school teachers, one of which will tell his from a Texas grave.

The Hitting Stops Here!
A campaign for teaching kindness and respect in schools everywhere.
The present number of knowledgeable American adults of the cruel act of striking America’s sons and daughters in schools with wooden boards still being legal, is sufficient for having this class of “voiceless” citizens gain federal “legislative protection” from this practice swiftly (targeted primarily at socioeconomically-disadvantaged students and those having special needs, particularly nonverbal autism).
The bill is already in the hands of the appropriate federal leader, John Kline, US Education Committee Chairman (also member of US Armed Services), having been introduced to Congress, not once, not twice, but three times by the lovely New York Representative Carolyn McCarthy, widowed through an egregious act of violence, herself (having in mind a decrease in crime through a decrease in teacher-to-student assaults).
Chairman Kline is empowered to bring this brutal form of student “bullying” by American educators to an end--he also receives a six-figured salary to do so.
