Lamar Alexander to Become the Next Secretary of Education at The Expense of Children with Autism
Discrimination on US National Education
As unbelievable as it sounds it looks as if Lamar Alexander will make his bid to replace the current Secretary of Education and join the Obama administration. I find this to be a most bizarre move on behalf of the Obama administration since funding the solar companies while taking money from Oil interest to finance his campaign.
Lamar Alexander among other things co-authored the disastrous “No Child Left Behind” bill with John Boehner that completely and totally discriminated against disabled children in America. President Obama has repealed that bill and has replaced it with “Race to the Top” yet another discriminatory bill. I guess if the goal is to discriminate by President Obama he couldn’t have picked a better person for the job then Lamar Alexander as Lamar has a long history.
It would seem the politicians have finally found something they can agree on in Washington DC which is to discriminate against disabled children in federal education programs. Wow, DC agrees to rip off the crippled children of the USA? What has this country come to?
Of course, this like so many other bad policies is a choice on behalf of Barack Obama. I guess the perception of working together is more important then actually providing services to America’s most vulnerable population. It would seem DC still has the same priorities. They still insist on doing the exact same thing and expecting a different result. It is clear they are all addicts there.
Lamar Alexander is old and frail and he has seen to many winters on the tax payers dime. He needs to retire. No Child Left Behind was a disastrous educational policy for this country and the differences between No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top are minimal and not at all for children with Autism. Neither program has any scientific valid data supporting them as good policies especially for children with Autism. And Autism is growing in this country exponentially. It is the social and educational crisis of this era and to ignore this population and continue to socially isolate them so they never develop social skills which are critical to their survival is discriminatory, neglectful and exceptionally expensive.
A choice could be made and President Obama could embrace all Americans even the disabled ones.
After all when he ran people gave him a chance. Now why wouldn’t he want to just as generous to others as they have been to him?
So if anyone out there has President Obama’s ear ask him to embrace children with special needs specifically those with Autism and give them an equal chance at the American Dream like he has had. It would only be fair. And Lamar Alexander will not bring him closer to that goal but further away from it. As far as I am concerned Lamar Alexander should spend the rest of his life working as teacher’s aid in a self contained Varying Exceptionalities (VE) classroom with severely disabled children to understand just how damning “No Child Left Behind” has been to the disabled population.
President Obama has a choice to embrace all Americans and lead this country or continue to fake the perception of bipartisanship in DC. We all are aware JEB is running. So now the question is how Barack Obama wants to go out like a lion or a lamb? Fighting for all Americans even those who are the most vulnerable with Autism or in the slick Persian Bizarre manner he has run his campaigns, his associations and his executive orders? I would want to leave leading. But the choice is President Obama's.
