We can not sit back and let people who can not even come up with a budget or Balance Americas Check Book tell our Schools what to do, it is time that we Americans, take back our Schools and get the Federal Government, the States, Special Interest and the Unions out of our Schools.
Schools should be spending more time on Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic, every one of these head you in the right direction, we should not be teaching any thing else until you get in to the Eight Grade, then you start them on a trade.
This is why our kids are failing in this Country,because they are more interested to bring in Foreigners to do the jobs that Americans should be doing.
This Country has turned their backs on Education for Americans to Educate people from around the world, until they close the door there will not be a good Education program in this country.
Just look at how they want to give people from outside this country cheaper education while our kids pay more to go to college and school.
Why not lower the rates to our students instead of charging more so that they can bring people from outside this Country to get a better education then what our kids are getting, is this why our kids are failing, is this why our Teachers and Government are holding back out kids so this country can be left behind.
There is definitely some thing rotten going on in this Country when Companies, the Rich, and the Government should be spensding more time with this Country, but they want to hand out Work Visas, and turn their backs on American Worker and their Education.
Zuckerberg launches immigration reform advocacy group
By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News – The Ticket
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is joining with top Silicon Valley CEOs to launch a political advocacy group called FWD.us that, among other things, will urge lawmakers to pass immigration reform.
Politico reports that Linkedin co-founder Reid Hoffman and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer are among the group’s major contributors. Former staffers in the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations have joined the group as well.
Before launching FWD.us, Zuckerberg had dipped a toe into politics when he donated $100 million to the struggling school system in Newark, N.J. He also held a fundraiser for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, in February.
High-profile techies have argued that the current legal immigration system does not allow them to attract and retain high-skilled immigrants from around the world. In March, executives from Facebook, Google, eBay and dozens more tech companies sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to add more visas for high-tech workers.
