The best stuff comes out of the government late on Fridays. This is because they are trying to bury it. Release it too late to make it onto the evening news, and release on a Friday because fewer people pay attention to the Saturday news – and by Monday it is forgotten.
For example, Public Schools Perform Near Private Ones in Study,
The Education Department reported on Friday that children in public schools generally performed as well or better in reading and mathematics than comparable children in private schools.
And how about the Christian private schools that the Republicans try to push on us?
So here we are with a government pushing an agenda on us, and hiding the science that shows the agenda makes things worse.
And how does the reality affect Bush ideological government?
A spokesman for the Education Department, Chad Colby, offered no praise for public schools and said he did not expect the findings to influence policy.
Reality doesn’t matter. They are going to push their ideology on all of us, no matter what.
From the story,
Its release, on a summer Friday, was made with without a news conference or comment from Education Secretary Margaret Spellings.
This is not a government of all the people.
