Get Ready for Kasich's Attack on Public Schools

•••  Teachers and parents should study any education "reform" that comes from Gov. John Kasich and the Ohio Republicans. If you believe that private corporations should make a profit on the education of our children, you'll like what Kasich has in store. However, if you are like a majority of Ohioans that support public schools, you'll hate the push for more failing charter schools.  WKYC has some hints of what is ahead.
If you need some background on Kasich's newest education reformer, Marguerite Roza, you need to read, and email the article about the biased and unscientific research that Roza has based her program:
•  Last week, Republican Rep. Paul Broun made some completely ignorant statements.


...."I think my role is to uphold support and defend our Constitution," Broun said Tuesday according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution. I don’t know what constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet Constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer."

Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago prior to becoming a U.S. senator.

The Journal-Constitution also noted that the last time a constitution was ratified for the defunct United Soviet Socialist Republic was 1977... 

It might not matter to the people in Georgia's 10th congressional district, but the USSR that Rep. Paul Broun is referring to no longer exists because it dissolved in 1991. You'd think Broun would know that since he is an elected member of the House of Representatives and a physician. Paul Broun's lack of knowledge about this historical fact is shameful. In case you haven't guessed, Broun's comment about President Obama is wrong too.
