10 Trillion dolars of NCLB/RTTT reforms..anyone feel it was money well spent

"Parents say Loudoun officials reaching too far to stop school tardies"

So it's lets all start blaming the parents again. Next week it will be let's blame the teachers week, and let's not forget the children.
Have you noticed it's never look in the mirror at a decade of NCLB Status Quo  reform policies that have spent a trillion dollars in DC?  They love that "Smoke and Mirror" song of keep blaming everyone, but the DOE.
Since NCLB only accounts for around 10% of school funding nationally that means our nation has spent nearly 10 trillion dollars on NCLB/RTTT when you add in state and local funding.
We could have reduce class sizes,
We could have hired a 100,000 more teachers,
We could have hired a million tutors,
We could have offered every college students free tuition for 20 hours of tutoring a week for 4 years?
We could have funded summer school programs in every community in the USA,
But instead our United States Department of Education decided testing children more is the way to go!
Do any of you feel like America got it's money worth from DC school reforms?
Don't you think it's time to take back our schools from these policy making failures?
I am going to occupy the DOE in DC this 3/30, 3/31, 4/1 & 4/2!
If you are in DC this spring as put the public back in public education?
If you are wondering what the Walking man is listening today on his walk:
That's right a Little Twisted Sister "We're not gonna take it anymore"
