Education May Propel the Blue Wave in DeVos Country

Education May Propel the Blue Wave in DeVos Country

Jeff Bryant

The DeVolution of education under DeVos, can only awaken rational minded parents to repel the corporate takeover of public schools.

I cringe at this “blue wave” talk. Blue is the color of passivity and submission (and causes all kinds of confusion among foreign observers of US elections where red on the maps is universally used for the left to center-left).

The Democrats may continue to use the color blue, while the surging fascist right uses the color red - formerly associated with socialist revolutionary ardor, for obvious psychological reasons. But the US left seriously needs to reclaim the color red - if not the red-and-black - and reclaim the word “libertarian” with it.

I have personal contempt for the “stuff em onto a computer and then walk away” educational mentality sweeping the nation. Computer learning produces classes full of Einsteins in some billionaire’s fantasy world. In this world educational achievement is cratering. A leading part of the problem is buggy educational software with zero emergency recovery ability when, not if, the software homework system doesn’t make sense, is utterly unreadable, is unsolvable. If it sounds like I’ve worked with the trash, you’re right.

Blue is the color of the sky and the plant life in the ocean( blue green). If someone also reads as a blue/peaceful person that does not mean passive. It is a sign of reason.

I think the Trumpers are responsible for it. I also questioned the timing. They are the ones who want these people here ( USA) for their businesses. The rest of us- could give a hoot.

Good point! Plus social thinking and social skills are getting dumbed down.
