So when middle class Americans complain about the Education Secretary introducing more standardized tests to 'fix' public education - his response is to pass off the frustration with Federal overreach as "white suburban moms realizing their kids aren't as bright and their schools aren't as great as they thought"? Everyone knows our schools suck, Secretary Duncan. And everyone knows it's the fault of bureaucrats like you thinking DC knows how to run them better than their local communities. Further, if any communities' schools DESPERATELY need freedom from your psychosis-resembling regulation - it's the poor and minority ones; I know from having WORKED in them. Stop race-baiting to distract from your incompetence, the US is catching on to the uselessness of your entire department.
