If you haven’t been following public education news and opinions obsessively for the past five or six years, you probably have no idea what’s going on. You may be completely confused.
If this is the case, the following social media meme will clear things up for you.
Keillor is an American storyteller and humorist who is best known for hosting the radio show A Prairie Home Companion which is set in the fictional Minnesota town of Lake Wobegon “where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.” Hmmm…perhaps this is why NCLB pushed for 100% proficiency by 2014. Our government thought it could turn us the whole country into Lake Wobegon.
If you’re in the Oklahoma City area, you can see Keillor on Oct. 20 at Hudson Performance Hall.
