The school of far, far away
Prestigious public school illegally gets rid of poorly performing students to raise its NCLB test scores.
Republican to English translation: "No Child Left Behind" = "Fuck the darkies." After all, the easiest way to raise your test scores is not via teaching better -- NCLB provides no money for teaching better, after all. No, the easiest way to raise your test score is to get rid of all those untermenschen -- the poor, the disabled, those who are, let us say, suspiciously dusky (horrors!). After all, if we educated them, why, they might even compete with OUR kids for those prestigious slots at the top ranked universities. Horrors!

But that was one of the most important features of the Houston school system that resulted in its "miracle" transformation under the future Secretary of Education. You simply drop under performing students from the rolls, they probably didn't want to be in school anyway. [/snark]
