Hedge Fund Pair o Dice - Another Rap Inspired by Real Reformers

    This just came in over the transom. Real Reformers: Get out those capes.
    Inspired by the Real Reformers calling BS on all those slim shadies. As Tom Lehrer used to say, "Every revolution needs a folk song.... Ready, Aim, SING."

    Best,

    Hedge Fund Pair o Dice
    -- Schoolio

    As I walk through the city and my mind is bereft,
    I take a look at my grades,
    And mediocrity’s left.
    'Cause I've been tested and messed with so long,
    That even Obama thinks that my mind has gone.
    And his homeboy Arne Duncan said we need a Katrina,

    To overhaul the schools, or he’ll squeeze us like sardines, yo.

    To the suits in the news we need nuthin’ but charters,

    To them an inner city kid’s political barter.

    They act like there ain’t nuthin’ to rampant co-location,

    But damn if you’d see their Muffy in a bowl-shit situation.

    Don’t gimme EIP’s -- how’s an IEP gonna fit, son?

    Fool, I’m the kinda G that little homie’s wanna be like,

    On my knees in the night,

    Prayin’ for a “3” in the street light.



    [Chorus]
    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Playing with a hedge fund pair o dice.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Playing with a hedge fund pair o dice.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Living in a hedge fund paradise.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Living in a hedge fund paradise.


    Proficiency ain’t suffient, see?

    Excellence be gettin’ hell away from me.

    In my situation, a graduation proclamation,

    No regents scholar, diploma and a buck can’t even buy a dollar.

    Remedial classes just to fit in with the masses,

    Credit recovery, where’s the class room that I didn’t see?

    Where’s MY Campaign for Frickin’ Equity?

    My mama brought the suit, and still there’s nothing left for me!

    My passion is my destiny.

    I know the truth, now which of you all fakers got the guts to say I’m free?

    I scored a “2” yo, will I live to see a “4”?
    I need recalibratin’, if I’ma raise my score.



    Tell me why are some still blind to see,

    Their only move -- blame the UFT.

    [Chorus]
    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Playing with a hedge fund pair o dice.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Playing with a hedge fund pair o dice.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Living in a hedge fund paradise.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Living in a hedge fund paradise.


    Power in the money, money in the power,
    Pay me for my test score! hour after hour.
    Everybody's cramming, but half of them ain't booking.
    It's going on in Tweed,
    Where School Prog Reports are cooking.
    They say I gotta learn,
    Sent an intern here to teach me.
    If they can't understand me, how can they reach me?
    I guess they’re tryin,
    But inside I’m dyin.
    They blame it all on tenure,
    But that’s Bloomberg manure!

    [Chorus]
    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Playing with a hedge fund pair o dice.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Playing with a hedge fund pair o dice.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Living in a hedge fund paradise.

    They’re spreading edu-lies,

    Living in a hedge fund paradise.


    [Refrain – and Retain]
    Tell me why are some still blind to see,

    Their only move -- blame the UFT.

    Tell me why are some still blind to see,

    Their only move -- blame the UFT.
