Spite the power

Our public schools stink. Education majors are typically at the bottom of the heap for SAT and other standardized test scores. Political correctness demands creating students with high self-esteem without negative feedback so that they can be confident about everything yet competent at nothing. And the whole shebang is run by a malevolent gang of parasites masquerading as teachers' unions, supervised by whatever political hacks lurk at the bottom of the talent pool.

Well, I suppose I could have overstated that just a bit. Atlas hasn't shrugged yet -there are still some heroes in our schools (like this one), and they could do even better given the resources. But how can we find them, and how can we get them resources without having them misallocated by the legions of sticky fingered lowlives infesting statehouses and school administrations?

Here's how. Thanks to Tara Smith of Aetiology.
