For the poor and middle class it just doesn’t matter

The education deformers will tell you things like class size doesn’t matter, teacher education doesn’t matter (they are eliminating bonuses for advanced degrees), teacher experience doesn’t matter and the arts don’t matter either. Furthermore they believe standardized tests are great arbiters of a quality education.

That’s right if you are poor or middle class the powers-that-be would have you believe these things aren’t important for your children.

This while many of them send their own children to elite prep schools with smaller classes, rich art programs and that tout the experience and level of education that their teachers have. Also their standardized tests consist of a day or two of S.A.T. prep.

Why is there a double standard for what’s good for their children and what is good for yours? No I am asking you and I am also asking you why you put up with it.
