Today, one of parents’ greatest fears is making certain their kids receive a good education. It’s gotten so ridiculous in some sectors of society that expecting parents are interviewing and reserving space in the finest kindergarten long before the child is born.

Liberal elitists are especially susceptible to this inter-parent peer pressure – to get their children into the finest schools. And of course the elites, in places like Washington D.C, San Francisco, L.A. or New York, would never stoop so low as to allow little Penelope or Reginald to attend a public school, where they might have to interact with the serfdom class. The country club class insists on the finest education for their offspring, and despite their rhetoric, don’t believe this can be achieved in a public school.

I don’t know about those other cities, but regarding New York, I’m going to break from my norm and side with the elitists on this one. As bad as New York public schools are presently, they are about to get a lot worse.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that, “New York education officials are poised to scrap a test designed to measure the reading and writing skills of people trying to become teachers…”

Now why would the New York Education Department do such a thing? Care to take a guess? If you guessed racism, you win the prize.
