"I didn't want to try to save the country's children and our educational system and jeopardize my own children's education."
I tell you, my disgust with these jocks is starting to run really deep. In most of the wider senses of the word as well, like "jockey" from the online dictionary:
* cheat: defeat someone through trickery or deceit
* compete (for an advantage or a position)[NOTE: as in gaming the system, in this case, public education]* someone employed to ride horses in horse races
* ride a racehorse as a professional jockey[NOTE: not the groom and not the trainer (that's us), but the RIDER.]* an operator of some vehicle or machine or apparatus; "he's a truck jockey"; "a computer jockey"; "a disc jockey"
[NOTE: the word "operator," a facile user of the apparatus]
What's good for the goose, and all that sort of thing.
