Having just watched The Hunger Games with my two boys earlier today, Effie Trinket's Capitol slogan, "May the odds be EVER in your favor," struck me as the perfect tag line for Arne Duncan's NCLB waivers, officially known as ESEA Flexibility. The irony in the line applies equally well to public education as it does to the unfortunate tributes in the movie, with the odds stacked against both sets of players by the heavy-hand of those living in a Capitol city.
Well said. Reblogging. :)
