8. "restructuring the way teachers are hired, promoted, and dismissed." Yeah that'll get academia on


board with the Democrats. "Hey guys we need your votes, but we're advocating stalling your promotions and making it easier for your employer to fire you". Also, when how do you expect schools to improve when you're taking a dump on the teachers? But I'm sure Turd Way has some sort of 7-point plan of top-down hierarchical solutions to fix that problem. Because the one thing education needs is more top-down administration.

"I like to fire people who provide services to me" - Mitt Romney, 2012 Republican primary debates.

The rest of the goals are so unrealistic as to be laughable.

"Become an export giant... primarily through aggressive new trade measures like the Trans Pacific Partnership" - Maybe if they want our chief export to be American jobs. Haven't these fartsniffers figured out that without protectionist policies jobs will go to where the labor and resources are cheaper?
