Maestro, Some “Opt Out” Music Please | The Merrow Report

Maestro, Some “Opt Out” Music Please | The Merrow Report:

Maestro, Some “Opt Out” Music Please
Major celebrations always begin with music.  Sunday’s Super Bowl had Lady GaGa, for example.  The national meeting of United Opt Out will have music of its own. A well-placed source inside the organization tells me that the annual meeting (beginning Friday in Philadelphia) will kick off with a variation on a familiar song. The lyrics, leaked to me, are below.
“YOU GOTTA KNOW WHEN TO TEACH ‘EM…
KNOW WHEN TO TEST ‘EM…
KNOW WHEN TO STEP ASIDE AND JUST LET ‘EM LEARN.
THE STATE KEEPS SAYING “TEST ‘EM,”
BUT ALL THAT DOES IS MESS ‘EM.
SCHOOLS DO TOO MUCH TESTING!
LET’S MAKE LEARNING FUN AGAIN”
My source said that the original song is by a Kenneth Ray Rogers, someone I’d never heard of.  However, my source apparently knows Mr. Rogers well because she/he kept referring to him as ‘Kenny.’
United Opt Out plans to sing the song three times, changing line three every so slightly each time, from ‘just let ’em learn‘ to ‘just watch ’em learn‘ and, finally ‘just help ’em learn.’  That covers the bases, I guess.
The United Opt Out gathering is expected to draw a large number of committed Maestro, Some “Opt Out” Music Please | The Merrow Report:
