You know those people who spend hours (76 hours in our cases) in summer professional development, hundreds of dollars per year on classroom supplies students can’t provide themselves, and sometimes throw their bodies in front of F5 tornadoes to protect students? Yeah. Apparently those people, and their representatives, are blobs.
Attack of the Oklahoma EduBlob!
A few days ago, we learned that the blob is the latest descriptor for Oklahoma’s public education system. Perhaps we should adopt Mr. Blobfish as our official symbol.
This newest insult is brought to courtesy of Dr. Greg Forster, a senior fellow with the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice. Yeah, those guys.
In his recent article for the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA), Forster describes those who advocate for Oklahoma schools and educators as a BLOB full of shameless, self-indulgent hustlers.
