This has been popping up all over the internet, but what better video to post with Election Day fast approaching? If you’re still undecided, perhaps these students from the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, can help you. Here’s a taste of their lyrics:
Lower your Taxes – you know Obama Won’t
PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS – You know McCain won’t!
Have enough experience – you know that they don’t
STOP GLOBAL WARMING – you know that you won’t
And here’s the whole song, performed live.
Ron Clark, the school’s founding teacher, is the author of a best-selling book on teaching, The Essential 55: An Award Winning Educator’s Rules for Discovering the Successful Student in Every Child. Check out the blog of the American Prospect for some additional context about the school that might surprise you. Here’s a hint: the school isn’t free.
