(Mensaje se repite en EspaƱol) (For a national view of public education reform see the end of this blog post) As we approach Oscar weekend, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Academy. Thank you, Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences voters, for recognizing that the movie "Waiting For Superman" had about as close a connection to reality as Bill Gates does to the struggles of working class families. Thanks to the monstrous marketing effort to reach Academy voters, and the kindness of a cruel friend, I recently suffered through this fluff piece, for free. My conclusion: I want my two hours back.
