Casting spells for universal proficiency

Jeff Kuhner

Code Pink, the anti-war group, is holding a rally protesting Berkeley's Marine Corps Recruiting Center. According to news reports, the organizers have urged the protestors to use witchcraft to end the Iraq war, telling them to come equipped with spells and pointy hats in order to cast spells for "peace."

Now that's original. Perhaps we at Fordham should take a page from Code Pink's playbook and come to work dressed as witches. We can all beef up on witchcraft, and start casting spells for universal proficiency in K-12 reading and math. We should even ask President Bush and Education Secretary Margaret Spellings to help us mix our secret brew. But that would only confirm for the Bush-haters that the administration is possessed by evil, demonic spirits.
