This is my favorite thing I've read all day. I think "Fake Statistic Troll" might be my uber-favorite.

ICYMI: My group, Integrity in Education, joined the Center for Popular Democracy to release this report earlier this week. We found that charter operators in just 15 states were responsible for over stealing or losing $100 million in taxpayer money. The report includes recommendations to prevent this sort of theft and waste from recurring.

Funny thing, Piers: When you call people stupid and tell an oppressed community "I'm on your side, you dimwits," you're really not.

Wow. This is highly disappointing.

So adorable! This pup, who lives with her mom at the National Zoo, struggled when she was first born. She's doing great now :)

"As students at one of the wealthiest, most inaccessible universities in the world, we do have a place in this struggle. But that place is not in having a résumé-padding “eye-opening” experience at the expense of kids who need real teachers. It is our responsibility to stop. Stop pretending that these students just need a really passionate math teacher. Stop ignoring the elephant in the room: poverty. Stop speaking for people we have no right to speak for."

"Dear teachers,

"My youngest of three starts kindergarten tomorrow.

"Meanwhile, my older son and daughter are campaigning to influence their little sister's opinion. Will she love school, as her big sister hopes, or dread school, like her brother?

"At right is the countdown that my 7-year-old daughter has been keeping for the past 27 days. It is a countdown to her nirvana: the beginning of 2nd grade. But for my 5th grade son, it is a countdown to impending doom: the end of summer’s freedom.

"I am writing to you with the hope that my 2nd grade daughter will win this school debate—and that all my kids will love learning, even if they won’t all admit it."

"Time and again, my white students write that "everybody's equal" is the "most important" thing their parents taught them about race. Time and again, a not-insignificant number of them then proceed to describe their present trepidation about a.) telling their parents they date interracially; b.) bringing home a Latino/a or black classmate; c.) Thanksgiving break, when everyone will silently tolerate the family member who makes racist comments; or d.) something else that reveals how deeply and clearly these students know this "most important teaching" doesn't mean a hell of a lot to their actual white experience."
