I say, Muffy and I are simply beside ourselves with all the progress we’ve made this month. First, those awful public school teachers are finally going to be judged by test scores. Frankly, that’s a gift to Mikey and Joel, who can design tests to produce whatever results they like. Why, we can design tests so difficult that no one can pass them, do it two years in a row, and then finally get rid of all those overpaid teachers with years and years of experience. Sure we’ll have to pay those oversized pensions, but we can correct that in the future. In fact if we do this on any regular basis we can turn over staff every two or three years.
Best of all, we’ve raised the charter cap, and we will have another hundred charters right here in Manhattan. Perhaps we can turn all of Harlem into one entire charter school. We were very fortunate that the awful proposal to have the rabble have a say in where charter schools are located was turned back. Joel and Eva know where they belong, and I’m certain they will place them well.
Finally Mikey has done very well by refusing those awful unionized teachers raises. It’s about time we had a mayor who’d stand up and say no more money for you, and I don’t care about any darn contract! Let’s put those slovenly teachers in their places, rather than have them out buying big screen TVs and other luxuries that rightly belong to the upper classes! And today, the Daily News says he’s going to fire teachers anyway!
Good for him, say I! Let’s continue our march toward a system where education trains the bootless and unhorsed to serve us, as they rightly should!
