What? What?
by

In testimony before a Senate committee Thursday, Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan admitted he doesn’t know what the word “tautology” means. This is a bit peculiar for the guy at the top of the education industry, who we would expect to be conversant with his native language. But it’s hardly disabling. English is a very large language, and language instruction in recent decades has been very small.

What’s more troubling is that, on the available evidence from a school near you, our Arne, and his legions of edu-bureaucrats, almost certainly doesn’t know what education means either. And as he is education minister for the most left-wing president in our history, he either doesn’t know or has no sympathy for the verity that education in America is a state and local responsibility. At least it was when we were still a republic, rather than the Dr. Moreau hybrid the political class has caused us to morph into.
