The report highlights the potential consequences of such cuts: lower graduation rates and overall achievement levels. It also stressed the need to invest in education and praised President Obama's plan to provide $25 billion dollars to prevent layoffs and strengthen public education.

    A White House report that praises Obama. Its the only place Obama will receive praise.

    It has to be a success if your goal is to break the back of America, and force communistic rule on it. This is why every agency is being sued for violating federal laws. Obama’s policy is like tying lead weights to a drowning victim, then saying after their death, we succeeded.

    I'll just comment on the first statement and leave it at that. "White house report, since the end of the recession in 2009" are they nuts? The recession isn't over!

      There's nothing more intellectual than a Democrat posting on the Internet. They are always identifiable by the trademark lack of meaningful content and insult. It's particularly funny when they fly right into facts as if they didn't exist. For example, the "recession" didn't end in 2009. In case you haven't noticed, it's still going on. (Maybe you're still getting that government paycheck, but everyone else is having a bad time.)

        Don't be angry because you are stupid, you can change your miserable life and get an education, heck, it might even lead to a better job for you, so you would not be crying on every post you make.

      I agree. Better than them being stupid and voting Democrat. Fewer socialist teachers less future socialists.
