His 9 years of homeschooling have made him a public education expert

I found this incredible op-ed piece linked from Education News. The author is 16 years old and takes offense to the fact the Governator has been booed during some speeches he has given recently. He also compared the protests to "the fascist squadrismo violence imposed on Italy during the early part of the 1920’s"

My favorite tidbit is this:

. . .teachers in California are so incompetent that they can’t get jobs in other fields or industries.

Where does his expertise on California public school teachers come from? Well, his 9 years of home schooling in Minnesota.

Other websites his views are posted on include,, and His article is proof that you need to know nothing as far as the anti-public school crowd is concerned; if you criticize public schools then you must be right.

It's those selfish teachers again--the "special interests," according to Schwarzenegger. How dare they react when the Governator decides to improve education by no longer funding their pensions.

The GOP will not rest until we're all Wal-Mart associates.

I hope ag2828 was trying to be funny.

After criticizing a post that suggests all teachers in California are unable to find other gainful employment, ag2828 backs up the initial charge by suggesting that teachers are only qualified to work as Wal-Mart associates.

Talk about being your own worst enemy.

A lot of people sure do have time to criticize, but don't roll up their sleeves and work to make it better. Just an observation.
