No Child Left Behind

One of Bush's many failed policies.

No Child Left Behind.

This was the Bush educational policy. It is scary! By now all have seen the video on youtube of Miss Teen South Carolina ans her answer on why American students are not as proficient in geography as other nations. In case you are in the dark, her answer was a shortage of maps. Since she is 17 yrs old, that makes her a product of the Bush educational policy.

Another scary thing pertaining to the Bush policy is the ad for a company that lends students money for college. The ad points out that a lot of students fall short of the required monies for college The ad gives a multiple choice question with answers. The answers are:

A--search couch for loose change.

B--sell a kidney

C--play the lottery

D--call said company for a loan.

It is so bad that the ad guy gives the correct answer of D. It is an ad for a company and the company's name is one of the answers and yet they have to give the correct answer. Does not bid well for the "No Child Left Behind" program.

Does not say too much for the intelligence of the grads that will move on to college. Keep in mind these will be our future leaders. If that does not scare you then you are a product of the Bush educational policies.


Note: since I wrote this they have changed the answers a bit. Apparently, someone tried to sell a kidney to go college. Now the "B" answer is sell ad space on his body. Again must they be reminded that the answer would be "D"? It is an ad for "said " company for God's sake.
