California--largest state in the union and second-worst schools and bluer than an Andrew Dice Clay monologue. New York, Illinois--same. Take it from an unemployed teacher who tried his best in the education racket and got clobbered by admin that only cared about test numbers (enough so that some of them allowed cheating on state tests) and students who conspired to eliminate teachers who wouldn't inflate their grades. Thank you, Leftism; you and the children you create are indeed an awesome power, but nothing compared to the God of reason, truth and love. Your time will end.
