So of course afterwards we grilled her:
- what was the test like?
- what kind of questions did they ask you?
- what did you answer?
- what words did you tell them you know?
- and so forth.

Great...I am guessing that can only mean one thing. We're In! Yeah right. I have heard crazy stats that it is harder to get into a CPS selective enrollment school than it is Harvard. My brain gets so frustrated when I hear this.
It this frustration coupled with Michele Rhee appearing on Oprah to talk about teacher quality. Then it is Waiting for Superman touting charter schools as the answer. As a parent, it is ALL of these things that our children need. It is not a one size fits all answer. It is all answers.
If only teachers were paid and revered in this country like sports stars we might all be a little better off.
