More Liberals teaching our kids????

Not all kids perform equally in an academic environment and I feel the education system unfairly favors the ones that do.

It is for that reason that 25% of the grade top students receive should be removed and given to the more "hands on" learners that struggle with learning in an institution setting.

It just doesn't seem fair not to and since the liberals frequently propose this for other areas, I feel it is only natural to implement it in an education setting as well.

Send your young adults to private universities and you won't have to worry about the crazy Liberals teaching our kids!
Fight back, we have!
