Bush Suppresses Yet Another Report Showing That Public Schools Are As Good As (If Not Better Than) Private/Charter Schools

As I've mentioned in the past, the Bush family has a long history of burying favorable news about public education in America. It turns out that they're doing it again:

Students at charter schools performed significantly worse than students at traditional public schools, according to a study released yesterday by the Department of Education. The research was based on results from the "nation's report card" - the National Assessment of Educational Progress test. "After adjusting for student characteristics, charter school mean scores in reading and mathematics were lower, on average, than those for public noncharter schools," the study concluded. Republicans have been strong proponents of charter schools, which they made sure to promote through the ironically titled No Child Left Behind Act. Sure enough, the Bush Administration was quick to criticize its own study in a statement yesterday, in which Education Secretary Margaret Spellings continued to express her support for the now debunked theory that charter schools are better than public schools.
Sounds all too familiar, doesn't it?

Where else will they get the next generation of Republicans, if not from the ranks of those who know jack?
i think the Bush administration has some loose screws on its end. I wonder why they would cover up information such as this from the people when majority of Americans do go to public schools. Their probably embarassed at the fact that most of thei platforms are going down the drain.
After the Bush II junta anyone who believes that Republicans, who have backed him to the hilt, are about the United States succeeding are buying their PR. The Republicans are all about stealing everything they can, running up a huge credit card bill and burning the house down for kicks. John McCain has had a lot of success in selling himself as a patriot but that paint job is wearing out fast. He's just another crook.

The Republicans do not want your child to be educated, they want them to be robots for their use. They don't need to know much for that.
By the way, did you see this in the New York Times:

Evolution Major Vanishes From Approved Federal List

Evolutionary biology has vanished from the list of acceptable fields of study for recipients of a federal education grant for low-income college students.

The omission is inadvertent, said Katherine McLane, a spokeswoman for the Department of Education, which administers the grants. “There is no explanation for it being left off the list,” Ms. McLane said. “It has always been an eligible major.”
