U.S. Department of Education Unveils New
With support provided by Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Broad Education Foundation, each state department of education will certify and maintain correct tonsures. Speaking before the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, Bill Gates observed that "tonsures can be a potent vehicle for preparing our youth for their role as workers in the Global Economy." He added, "Tonsures will take their place as the living symbol of Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships in our schools."
Eli Broad has committed $6.42 million to training state education employees in perfecting a tonsure delivery system.
Asked to comment, Sen. Edward Kennedy said, "We are making progress with revising NCLB. When students spot their teacher's bald spot, they will know they're in good hands."
