They must have had Wicomico Board of Education in mind.

For this we owe 40 years of liberal democrat socialist control of the Education system.
They have dumbed down standards to the extent that we have lost all credibility on the world stage in k-12 education.
Lowering the bar as they have done year after year has served no one BUT the teachers unions who wish not to be held accountable for poor performance, poor outcome and false reward.
There is one exception, under Mitt Romney's Governorship, Massachusetts schools became #1 in the country.
As unpopular as people want to make it even though it's very evident and truthful to say, Massachusetts has half the black population as the national average which gives them a distinct advantage in statistical testing results.

Most people don't understand that the Feds shell out big money for education and wall street wants a piece of the pie. Feds have to convince the public that schools are failing by passing laws like NCLB where every third grade will be reading on grade level by 2014. Since public school has to educate everyone...mentally challenged to the gifted student, that goal is impossible. Wall street thinks that they can make a profit if they run a school. Just more greed involved in government.The human element is being taken out of education, more and more parents don't work with their children at home because they are out working 2 and 3 jobs just to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs.

I believe Mitt can and will turn the education system around and it needs to be done sooner rather than later.
