If you watched the two Oprah infomercials for Waiting for Superman this week, you might have noticed the following stats. If not, I'll lay them out for you.
- Total number of teachers on the panel: 0
- Total number of public school parents on the panel: 0
- Total number of billionaires on the panel: 3
- Total number of billions of the panelists: 60
- Total years of teaching experience of all the "experts": 2
- Total minutes devoted to defending unions: 1
- Total minutes devoted to humping charter schools: 119
I think that says it all.
