Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

Kudos to ReasonTV for this video. From yesterday's Save Our Schools rally outside the White House.

It is a tough 6 minutes to watch the liberals progressives communists in the US Public School system explain why we need to continue education policies and spending that have resulted in ever-lower standards and performance.

This video reminds us of a 60 Minutes segment on welfare recipients back in the late 80s. It was a window into a major Democrat area that showed the absurdity of the liberal argument.

A person who leans Democrat may not be disgusted by these people. A person who leans Democrat, and who is out of work, may have a different take.

A man of unquestionable honor and integrity said in October 2000:

I believe accountability encourages parental involvement. We need to say to people that if you cannot meet standards, there has to be a consequence, instead of the soft bigotry of low expectations. One of the consequences is we allow parents to have choices.

Since George W. Bush uttered those words, we've allowed our educators to retain their low standards for 11 more years. How many years of this failure is too much? Where do you draw the line?
