SUBSCRIPT: Satiric 'CRAP' video mocking corporate 'school reform' hits the mark nicely as a new school week begins

Who gives a crap? Well, the maker of the satirical video, CRAP, does. Thanks to satirist Sabrina, Norm Scott and New York City's Ed Notes, readers across the USA can enjoy one of the more relevant and humorous critiques of corporate school reform this week: CRAP (for "Corporate Reform Action Pack"). But in order to enjoy it, just go through Ed Notes:

The infamous Michelle Rhee cover of Time magazine. Time ignored the real problems of Washington, D.C. public schools, Rhee's own controversial (and apparently child abusing) record as a "teacher", and the fact that most of the teachers and other educators Rhee was sweeping out of the D.C. public schools were veteran African American teachers. The propaganda for corporate "school reform" reached a low point with the Time cover a year ago.

Although Substance always recommends that readers go through Ed Notes, you can also get the CRAP video through You Tube at 

Michelle Rhee's cover on Time

I believe in this world what goes around comes around. Michelle Rhee ordered the fires of all these veterans teachers in Washington, and the voters of Washington order the fires of Michelle Rhee. CPS ordered the fires of many teachers in Chicago and many people are demanding CPS officials to leave Chicago. I do believe justice will happen for the teachers in Chicago, and they need to stay strong, keep seeking employment and educational training, and keep doing what they love. Try to obtain your job back even if you have to take legal action. Don't let any other person/people determine you destiny, dreams, faith, and happiness.

There will always be evil entities that try to stop you from meeting your goals, but you must get up more stronger every time these evil forces knock you down.
