Dear Mr. President,

Some children don't have the benefit of caring adults who have the time, resources, knowledge and patience to provide them with real life learning opportunities / one on one attention / enriching educational experiences. Therefore, let's keep all of them, including the majority who do have those benefits, cooped up in classrooms all day everyday where they don't have the resources or staff necessary to provide them with all of those things. What? That doesn't make sense?

P.S. Oh? You have an idea as to how to get them the resources? Ha. Haha. Hahaha. Riiiiight. I trust your financial decisions about as often as I let my 2 year old eat silver dollars covered in used motor oil.

P.P.S. In case you're wondering, I never let her do that.

P.P.P.S. Performance on standardized tests does not indicate actual knowledge, critical thinking skills, creativity, ingenuity, or other vital skills for making it in a 21st century global economy. It indicates performance on standardized tests. Also did you ever think that perhaps our reliance on standardized tests has harmed our education system? Didja?

P.P.P.P.S. What may be good for inner city Chicago can in many cases be bad in small town Utah. Perhaps that's why the founding fathers left educational decisions to the states. *Shrug* They may have been on to something. And by that I mean get your enormous, smelly, federal feet out of local government problems and allow the critical thinking, ingenuity, creativity, and hard work of the American People solve them without any more nice-idea-rotten-implementation-federal red tape. Please.

P.P.P.P.P.S. Also, please do not create "gay-friendly" high schools, Mr. Arne Duncan. You're wasting our tax dollars thinking of stupid ideas.
