student at Young’s Motel 6 High School
School didn’t have computers, a library or even cafeteria services and the money the for-profit school saved by cheating 181 kids out of a decent education, they apparently divided up among themselves when the gig was finally up in Orlando. Christ, according to their recent evaluation, they couldn’t even teach English!
When you think about charter schools, you think about someone trying to sell the “public/private partnership” in terms of saving taxpayers some money. It’s simply not true. It costs more per student to educate through a charter school system and most studies show the education they receive is rather substandard at best. No accountability, no morals.. the WalMartization of Education is at hand.

UPDATE 3: “The French, Spanish and Greek governments all announced multibillion-euro austerity plans yesterday in the face of massive popular opposition.”
UPDATE 2: Slavery in the UK. The unemployed are being forced to work for major British corporations, for free, just so they can continue to receive their unemployment benefits. This plan is the same as one attempted here in the states, one that still has a great deal of support in congress. Imagine the profits retailers could pocket if they got free seasonal workers during the holiday buying season.
UPDATE: In Dubai, one of our close economic allies, they call slave owners “sponsors” and fine their slaves if they attempt to take their own lives when the desperation of their true situation becomes too unbearable to live with.
“I found myself thrown away and I thought of my poor family back home. I felt desperate and decided I should die,” she said. The National
While Americans cheer for the return of zebra striped officials to the NFL games today, the Spanish, the Greeks and many others across Europe are fighting for their very lives and the freedom to determine the quality of them on their own. Our apparent lack of concern is understandable when you consider that what they are desperately struggling against is in a large part, our creation. Not only is Dr. Frankenstein disinterested in the harm his creation inflicts on the people around him by choice, but the townsfolk themselves willingly turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the cries of their neighbors in nearby villages just so long as the monster feeds elsewhere.

I can’t think of a better front man for the soulless Democratic Party than Bill Clinton. He a liar, a womanizer, a sleaze who used his position of authority to stick his willy in a 21 year old intern AND he has made a billion or so dollars promoting his “Global Initiative” of bring fascism lite or “the public/private partnership” to America and the rest of the developing world (yes folks, we are the developing world these days right along with Spain, Greece, Italy, the UK and many others)
And lets not forget he bombed the shit out of Yugoslavia so they could “Balkanize” the nation for various business interests, destroyed Welfare as we knew it, railroaded Brooksley Born when she tried to warn of the unregulated derivatives markets, starved half a million Iraqi children to death simply to weaken the problematic puppet Hussain, and erased the protections of Glass-Steagall which allowed the “too big too fail” banks to cripple the economy and create the necessary environment for his fascist Clinton Global Initiative to thrive.
Personally I can’t think of a better representative of the self-absorbed hypocritical petty bourgeoisie of the left… and the fact that he invited Mitt Vulture Capitalist Romney to headline his little party should give those types a clearer glimpse into the mirror as to what they really are and what they really support (though it’s probably too late to warn the zOmbamies)

(H/T Kenny’s sideshow)
“The Clinton Foundation fighting global issues through business oriented solutions. The Clinton Foundation is the best world in the world.” propaganda video featuring Jack Black
“We are never going to end hunger in Africa without private investment,” USAID
“The structure of fascism is the union, marriage, merger or fusion of corporate economic power with governmental power” David Mills
President Obama has announced his big initiative to save the starving people of Africa by “unleashing the powers of the market” all across their continent. It’s called the New Alliance for Food and Nutrition Security. Obama has made this announcement at a G8 summit meeting at Camp David (created back in the 1930’s under the Works Progress Administration part of the New Deal) hosted by none other than the Chicago Council on Foreign Affairs. You may remember them. They changed their name back in 2008 when it was inconvenient for the wife of the next president to be affiliated with the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations.
But African civil society wants no part of this latest Monsanto aligned “public private partnership”. Whatever will the progressives do now that their flawless hero has teamed up with their most hated nemesis to exploit an entire continent like they did to India not that long ago?

“I work hard, but my grades don’t matter. But I have a voice and I will be heard!”
Jordan is 13, and she’s speaking to a crowd of mostly adults, sitting on the granite steps of the New York City Department of Education at Tweed Hall. Or rather, she is speaking through them, as her words echo through the people’s mic used at Occupy Wall Street just few blocks south from where she’s speaking.
Tonight the steps of the DOE have been occupied and are packed with teachers, students, parents, and supporters holding a general assembly on the state of public education in New York.

“This frontal attack on public education is highlighted by the fact that Bloomberg will allocate an increase of $139 million to charter schools next year.”
by Sandy English, WSWS
New York City’s billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg last Friday announced $600 million in budget cuts for the city’s Fiscal Year 2012, which will begin on July 1.
A recent protest in Manhattan against the education cuts
Bloomberg’s $65.77 billion proposed budget, which, according to law, must be balanced and approved by the city council by June 30, includes the elimination of over 6,000 teaching positions in the public schools, plans to close 20 fire companies and cuts to youth programs, homeless services, elder-care programs, continuing education programs, libraries and cultural organizations.
Over $500 million dollars will be eliminated from the city’s Department of Education. Out of the 6,166 teaching positions eliminated, 4,600 would be cut through the layoffs of teachers. The school system, the largest in the United States, has a million students and over 75,000 teachers.
