Los Chistes: @ArneDuncan Explodes the Public Education “Struggle Bus”

It has been awhile since Cloaking Inequity featured the humorous Breaking News comics. So today Cloaking Inequity adds a little bit of levity to the great debates about educational policy at the expense of Arne Duncan, US Secretary of Education. Students at the engineering school at The University of Pennsylvania created an interactive “struggle bus website” to help you vent. I have appropriated the “struggle bus” to describe Arne Duncan’s vision for public education. Note what happens to the struggle bus at the end.

  1. This is Right on Professor Vasquez,i will share this post on fb an tw


  2. Right on Professor Vasquez-H. I posted information about your Blog to Professor Bloom, TX Southern University, on Linkedin – “Educational Leadership” and others, where there is a hot debate going on about “Re-Segregation in the South” based on the latest Atlantic Monthly Magazine article.

    The bus is exploding … after all the struggles post Brown v. Board of Education because of policies by Duncan and “privatized” efforts by Walton, Gates, Broad and others. In addition the courts have long supported “de-facto” Segregation as a replacement of Southern “De Jure” segregation thus creating conditions for ‘privatized schemes” … and making them seem, “CLOAKING” them as “EQUITABLE” …
