    Sounds like another ‘No Lables’ fantasy.

    About wasted money in ed? The right will say we need more math and don’t need 5th grade cucumber/condom ed or multiple diversity bureaucracies. Horrors! says the Left.  Of course we need those and homework is too hard! What we don’t need is all this old patriarchal sexist genocidal American Founding stuff.

    N’er the twain shall meet.
