Total crock of sh*t, funding for schools is on the local level, only 10% comes from the federal government.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan appeared in the White House briefing room Wednesday with a warning about the effects of sequestration on the nation’s schools.

“Kids are gonna get hurt, kids are gonna get hurt. That’s just the reality,” he said. His visit to the briefing room followed recent appearances by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Duncan expressed real frustration with Congress for being unable to avoid the spending cuts due to begin taking effect on Friday. The dysfunction is “unimaginable,” he said, and makes him “angry” because students will be “taking steps backwards because folks in Washington can’t get their acts together.”
