Otequay of the Ayday

Perhaps no other sector of American society so demonstrates the failure of government spending and interference. We've destroyed individual initiative, individual innovation and personal achievement, and marginalized anyone willing to point it out. As one of my coaches used to say, "You don't get vast results with half-vast efforts!"

The results we're looking for are students learning, so we need to reward great teachers who show they can make that happen--and get rid of bad teachers who don't get the job done. It's what we do in every other profession: If you're good, you get rewarded, and if you're not, then you look for other work.

Awesome! On education, I think ThreeSourcers would dig Teaching America: The Case for Civic Education

It is a collection of essays/papers on the teaching of the Constitution, rights, history and government. A diverse panel is represented: Justice O'Connor, Alan Dershowitz, Insty, Juan Williams, Charter School operators, &c. Very thought provoking.
