Educrats Are Lying About Milwaukee’s School Choice Program November 26, 2007Posted by fitsnews in US Politics.
IF THE TRUTH DOESN’T WORK, THESE MORONS JUST MAKE SOMETHING UP
FITSNews – November 26, 2007 – In addition to completely sucking ass and hatin’ on parents, South Carolina’s education establishment has also proven itself remarkably-skilled at something else -lying. As in pants on fire. For example, Dr. Paul Krohne, Executive Director of the S.C. School Board Association had this to say in a recent Greenville (S.C.) News opinion piece slamming the successful school choice program up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin:
According to a study released recently … only 34 percent of Milwaukee’s parents actively choose a school for their child at all. Of that small group, less than half consider at least two alternatives in choosing a school. And of those who consider at least two schools, only 65 percent consider the academic performance of the school when choosing.
There’s only one small problem with that – it turns out the Wisconsin study Krohne references only surveyed public school parents, and on top of that, it only asked them about the limited options that are available within the city’s public school system. It didn’t ask parents of the roughly 20,000 children currently taking advantage of private or parochial educational options in Milwaukee.
Unable to refute the dramatic academic improvement of both public and private school students since choice was first implemented in Milwaukee back in 1990, Krohne is grasping at straws in an effort to pin something … anything … negative on the program – not to mention divert your eyes from the increasingly-expensive unmitigated disaster that is public education in South Carolina.
We don’t know where Dr. Krohne got his “Dr.” from, but he might want to go back and get a refund because they obviously forgot to teach him how to do research. We got our doctorate from the University of Truth, where in addition to research methodology they also taught us Ninja moves, humility and how to spot emerging fashion trends.
