Wake Up and Smell the Pollution Affecting the Brains and Learning of Our Children

Teachers, if you're sick and tired of hearing "No excuses" for your students' performance, perhaps we should all start sending administrators, school boards, superintendents, Arne Duncan, and President Obama a copy of this article as a reality check. Reality trumps no excuses. Perhaps everyone needs to wake up and smell the pollution affecting our students' brains. Then again, Big Oil and the rest of the extraction cabal won't like being found out as the cause of all this suffering. They'll continue to scapegoat teachers and use their billions to continue their propaganda campaigns to maintain their profits and power, all at the expense and suffering of our children and their future.
