He Ought to Have Nightmares!

Arne Duncan, the Education Secretary, said that the Detroit Public Schools could possibly receive millions of dollars in federal aid – but only AFTER it becomes “drastically better.” He’s holding Detroit in a trap – there’s no way to become “drastically better” without a big influx of money!

Duncan once said that he loses sleep over the poor education Detroit’s children are getting. If he’s tossing and turning now, he better blame himself!
