'F' FOR BARACK'S SCHOOL FIX

Chicago's former schools chief has flunked the education foundation headed by Barack Obama and founded by 1960s terrorist Bill Ayers - saying it failed to monitor projects and funded school "reform" groups that campaigned against boosting academic standards.

"There was a total lack of accountability. If you went back and asked, you'd be hard-pressed to find out how the money was spent," said Paul Vallas, the city's school superintendent when Obama chaired the Chicago Annenberg Foundation from 1995 to 1999.

Annenberg spent $49.5 million, mostly on grants to 211 public schools that partnered with community-based groups. But despite collecting millions, those schools performed no better than other public schools, a study found.

Ayers, a professor of education at the University of Illinois and an ex-Weather Underground bomber, wrote the grant that won the Windy City funding from the national Annenberg Challenge. He was a key adviser to the Chicago Annenberg board.

While much debate has centered on Obama's relationship with Ayers, there's been virtually no discussion about how the Annenberg schools performed.

"Very little of the money found its way directly into the classroom," Vallas said.

Most frustrating, Vallas said, was that Annenberg under Obama and Ayers funded groups that fought his mission, under Mayor Richard Daley, to impose uniform standards and stricter accountability in low-performing schools.
Many of Vallas' goals were later adopted by Mayor Bloomberg in Big Apple schools.

"Many of the school-reform groups viewed greater accountability as an infringement of local control. Some opposed ending social promotion and grade retention," Vallas said.

Obama defended the foundation's performance, saying it dispensed its funds to help struggling programs and train teachers.

So much for his anticipated Education plan "IF" he is elected.

Also, I think this speaks volumes as to his contention that he had limited dealings with the terrorist!

:rolleyes: Decoding a political rumor October 21, 2008 at 12:25 pm by Steve Barnes, senior writer
The New York Observer dissects a New York Post retraction of a gossip item that claimed Michelle Obama ordered caviar and lobster from room service at the Waldorf-Astoria. Turns out she wasn’t even at the hotel, which you’d think anybody who thought about it for a second would have guessed. Lobster and caviar? That’s just about the lamest, most cliched food order — at the Waldorf, no less! — to send the barely coded message “Rich people!” I’m surprised they didn’t also say she ordered chardonnay and brie, to tag her as a liberal, too.



The funny thing about this lie is that Mrs. Obama was never at the Waldorf-Astoria!:D :D :eek: :eek:

That's how they work it: When all else fails . . . lie. We'll be seeing more of this type of desperation tactic as we draw closer to election day. To paraphrase Hillary Clinton quote of Harriet Tubman: "When you hear the lies, keep going!"

Nobama is that he is a typical slimeball chicago politician. If all you people can come up with to smear McCain is Keating, where does that leave Nobama with all his baggage? Ayers and his initial fund raising for Nobama, Ayers and Nobama's overseeing of a failed education money mill which showed funds not used properly, no positive results in the classrooms, Acorn and it's proven affiliation with Project Vote. A less than sterling and short short time in the senate. "We got to spread the wealth around" More of my money sent to failed federal social programs and feeding the generations of welfare recipients. $45 million of NJ taxpayers money to Newark on top of massive amounts to the failed Newark Bd. of Ed. Uh Uh, no more, not this time.

McCain? Easily said, he is my Party's candidate and I support his entire platform.
