[Susan notes: Here's a very strong letter, right on target. Go forth and do likewise.]

Submitted to The White House but not published

Dear President Obama,

I heard your talk before Univisión listeners, and couldn't believe my ears. I listened to your words, and I listened to the translation, and this remarkable dissonance took hold. Your words of hope are swallowed in the avalanche of the reality of the malpractice of your administration's determination to destroy public education in a blizzard of testing that is making very few very rich.
