Mockingbird Schools

  • by Monica Zucker
  • tune: Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little children, don’t you mind.
Bush will leave no child behind.

POLiTICians know schools the best—
EduCAtion means taking a standard test.

If your school tests are too low,
Ed-u-ca-tion funds won’t flow.

More books, equipment, teacher pay,
Would just be throwing money away.

If kids test at the top of the pool,
They can go to a charter school.

Hush, little children, don’t say a word,
Congress is giving you the bird.
(Speak) And that mockingbird won’t sing!
