Miss America, Syria and the State of Our Educational System

Filed under: Check-it-out, Community, Pondering

I had a different topic planned for today, but I can’t stop thinking about bigger things, like the asinine reaction to our new Miss America, Syria, or the state of our educational system. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the most educated or eloquent when speaking about these important issues, but that doesn’t stop me from being passionate about them.

So, I thought I’d take this opportunity to passive-aggressively vent educate about these topics using some informational and entertaining resources.




and How One Great Teacher Was Wronged by Flawed Evaluation System. *Note–I’m also disgusted with the dysfunctional testing culture in our schools, but blogs just can’t be that long.


The floor is open for discussion. There is just too much going on here to get specific. I know most of these issues are complicated and not easily fixed, but for the record, the Miss America “scandal” in neither complicated or hard to fix. Just stop being an uneducated racist and it won’t bother you at all.
