Congratulations to Richie Fearn for putting "the real Deal" in perspective. The devil is in the details.
Soft-peddling education is an admission that our education system is broken, but using kids for profit must go on. In other, words, a high school education isn't as important as pundits would have us believe.
Shuffling and hiring more high-salaried adminstrators instead of teachers shows where the priorities are. Low test scores and dropouts have proven to be the least of our worries.
