Last call! Submit your slogan by the end of the day. I’ll put a few together as logos and we’ll vote next week. My new submission is “The NYC DOE: Truthiness in Education.” Some of yesterday’s submissions included:

The NYC DOE: Redefining success since 1876 (MD)

The NYC DOE: Do as I say not as I do (cha424)

The NYC DOE: Proficiency is forever. (Doug)

The NYC DOE: Making words and data mean whatever we want them to mean. (BHR)

Here’s the original challenge:

Every legit corporation has a catchy slogan. Nike rocks “Just Do It!” GE “brings good things to life.” But what about the NYC Department of Education?

Until the end of the week, you can submit your slogan for the NYC Department of Education as a comment. Surely we can come up with something splashy.

Enter early, enter often. Based on the Halloween Edu-Parade, NYC School Report Card Haiku Contest, and the Valentine’s Day Edu-Poetrycontests, this should be fun.

In light of the New York City Comptroller’s report issued this morning, which found that the Department of Education ignored bididng rules and overspent on travel, food, and conferences expenses in the middle of a budget crisis, my entry is:

The NYC DOE: Damn, It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta!

If you don’t get the “Office Space” reference, you can watch this video.
