Public education has it all

We have reformers and critics, and Broad Gates.
We have Deasy and Duncan who every teacher hates.

There is No Child Left Behind and Race To The Top,
Which every educator knows are a flop.

What about Pearson and the Common Core,
Which teaches the children that learning can be a bore.

There are Bush and Rhee,
Who we never want to hear or see.

Somehow ipads and tests come together as one,
The little computers are not used for fun.

There is Teach for America with 6 weeks to learn,
Six weeks to learn how to teach and then it is their turn.

Whether it is New York, New Jersey or L.A.
The teachers never have a say.

You wonder why teachers are depressed and mad
The reformers have turned a great career to bad.
