... 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."

August 11, 2010 at the Bullying Prevention National Summit, US State Secretary of Education Arne Duncan made the statement, “Victims of ‘bullying’ are ‘TattleTales.’”

“Important Message regarding American family break-up trends and schemes. Are you aware of names of candidates in your state who are running to become November 2014 elected officials? Are they concerned with the "legislative protective needs" of children, teenagers and infants who will be in their jurisdiction? Do they know of HR 5005? Would they post on their website their endorsement of this protective legislation for schoolage children and teenagers to publicize their support?
Learn about dates of primary elections in each state, who to vote for, how to know... (begin here: http://politics1.com/calendar.htm).
Litmus test suggestion for 'how to know": Call your officials and say,
do you support HR 5005? (if they say, "Which bill is that?" say, "Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act" introduced by Rep. McCarthy).
are you willing to post that you support this bill online where the public may see?
by when will you send me the link so I may inform others of your good intentions for having “legislative protective needs” met for our young beginning with HR 5005.
Please send responses for sharing.

A 1987 document is linked below. Have governments around the world adopted the message within? If so, how does this global message impact citizens under 18 today?: http://youtu.be/mZ0S6PX-4A0.
Based on paragraphs 6-7 in the document that follows, why would John Kline and Tom Harkin (US Education Committee Chairmen) and US State Secretary of Education Arne Duncan* allow adult male and female "educators" (US government-funded employees) take wooden boards to strike the children and teens left in their care, an instrument already deemed a "deadly-weapon" by the US Supreme Court Justice?: www.thehittingstopshere.com/plaintalk.php

*Duncan called victims-of-bullying "tattletales," at the "Bullying Prevention National Summit," August 11, 2010. He makes extremely important decisions regarding what American schoolchildren and teenagers face or learn within the four walls of their schools. What is Arne teaching children and teens when he tells them that they are "victims-of-bullying" because they speak-out, or "tattletale" as he so terms, for having their human and civil rights met?

The action that affects mmj patients the most is happening right now on the floor of the California state legislature and the 6 p.m. Monday, July 21 podcast of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense at www.blogtalkradio.com/marijuananews takes you right into the action.
Shona Gochenaur, long time medical marijuana activist, founder of the San Francisco Medical Cannabis Taskforce and winner of the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Harvey Milk Democratic Club is the show’s first guest. She will be taking a very jaundiced and personal look at SB 1262, one of the most important and consequential bills being considered in Sacramento. Both hailed and reviled, SB 1262 will have far reaching implications and Shona will provide her interpretation on how this bill will help and hurt mmj patients.
Americans for Safe Access is without a doubt the most active mmj patients’ organization in California and perhaps the entire world. As a founder and member of the Board of Directors, Don Duncan is deeply involved in their efforts here in the state of California. As the second guest on the Monday, July 21 show, Don will provide ASA’s insights into the legislation currently under consideration in Sacramento and provide information on ASAs Citizen Lobby Day in Sacramento to take place on Monday, Aug. 4.
A van trip is being organized that will take up to 15 patients from the Inland Empire to Sacramento to join ASA members and hundreds of other supporters to lobby their legislators on bills that will affect mmj patients. Learn from Don what is happening and how you can attend this important event.
