Giving Praise to a foreign leader.

Imagine if a few GOP members of Congress visited a far right-wing leader who ruled his Nation with an iron fist, who had killed countless people who dared spoke out against his policies, and praised the leader.   Do you think the GOP members would get a pass from the press and the Country?  

Well, the below link takes you to an article not about GOP members, but about the CBC-the Congressional Black Caucus who visited the Fidel Castro and said many nice things about him.   Yup, they had a good old time hanging out with a fellow Communist.

Will these “elected officials” face any backlash for their kissing up to one of the worst leaders in history?  I doubt it since they were praising the right type of leader.

More bad news for City schools.

The Commonwealth released graduation rates and the City drop out rate is 11.8% which is the highest in the area.   To make matters even worse and maddening, the students we waste, err, spend the most money on, esl students have a whopping 40% drop out rate.  Not much return for money spent. 

Of course too many members of the City Council just want to ignore the illegal alien issue and the poor results from the schools by saying they really have no say in the matter.  

I have not heard any response from the school board, though, I’m sure they are just happy the  drop out rate is not higher.
