Shocker: School Named After Obama “Fails to Meet Expectations”
November 13, 2014 3:30pm PST
The Barack Obama School of Career and Technical Education is showing a remarkably dismal academic performance according to a state report. Obama’s own approval rating is dangerously low as well in Wisconsin, where the Milwaukee public school is located. A Marquette University Law School survey indicated that only 41.4 percent of Wisconsin residents approve of the job Obama has done.
Data from the Department of Public Instruction shows that in the 2013-2014 school year, Obama Elementary rated only 39.4 out of 100 and “failed to meet expectations,” much like the 44th president of the United States. Only 14 Wisconsin schools earned worse scores. EAG News reported that each school’s score is calculated by looking at specific student achievement in areas like reading and math, and the school’s ability to improve student scores, among other things.

Obama Elementary, which served as a polling place during the 2012 election, earned its lowest scores in reading, which came in at just 2.2 out of 100. One wonders why students are even attending school at that point. If a child can only read a little better than two percent of words, then what is going on in the classroom? Yet, our hard-earned tax dollars are going towards this “education.” They also went towards resort vacations for Wisconsin educators to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, but I digress…
Even with these embarrassing scores, Obama Elementary touts this review on its website:
“Barack Obama School of Career & Technical Education K-12 prepares students to successfully transition from one level of schooling to the next, and from school to career in a safe, positive learning environment. We provide our students with research proven educational methods in reading, math, language arts, science and social studies which align with the K-12 academic standards and Grade Level Expectations.”
