As Toledo Public Schools teacher Amanda VanNess stood in the Oval Office and watched President Obama sign an education stimulus bill, she already knew she’d lost her teaching job back home to budget cuts and low seniority.

I smell a rat.
Could this be a democrat operative?
Sorry, but I can’t imagine being a prop.
But then, no politician and / or bureaucrat is inviting me to anything?
Doesn’t any one see the stupidity of paying all these “handling charges”? The Federal Gooferment robs people of their wealth under the guise of “protection money” aka “taxes”. They take a cut for handling and send it to the States. The States take a cut for handling and send it to the Cities. The Cities take a cut and send it to School Boards. They take a cut and there’s probably little left to spend on anything. Let’s, for ease of example, say that the handling charge is ½. (You can make up your own fraction because no one knows what it is.) There are (at least) four handling charges so it’s exponential. (Fed’s send half. State send half of the feds half. A half of a half of a half of a half may get to the children.) ½ ** 4 = a sixteenth! (Hope the county government doesn’t get in there some how.)
I can double the amount getting to schools with the stroke of a pen!
Fire the Federal Gooferment from having ANYTHING to do with education.
After that I have another idea with respect to the States.
(Bet you see where this is going. Yup, parents had ’em. They should educate them. It’s a lot cheaper and better beside.)
