I believe the idea that more money is needed to support a clearly failed education model is false.
It is clear that not too long ago a man could provide for his family. Those who control our finances have made it impossible for most men to provide adequately for their family. This carefully planned action has led to mothers having to work. This, by careful design, has moved the parenting function away from parents and to government institutions that are able to form opinions in children supporting the goals of our financial leaders.
How can anyone support giving money to a clearly failed and discriminatory system?
How can voters not see that it is the Educational Industrial Complex leading this disaster to support their own funding?
We have a population that is over educated and under jobbed.
We are educating illegals, that should be rapidly deported, for no reason at all!
I would hope Common Dreams would look carefully into this issue and present a realistic presentation of reality rather than the false claims that we need more educated workers.
The worst thin to happen in education recently was when Congress decided student debt could not be discharged.
Colleges are the only people conning people in to a terrible debt situation with the totally false expectation that the student will be able to pay it back.
All student loans should be illegal. How can it be ethical to give a person a loan when there is no reasonable expectation that the loan can be repaid. Talk about a true scam.
I asked our state education department to create a list of all open jobs requiring no experience but a college degree. They did not do so because hey knew in our state few, if any, such jobs existed.
In our state alone we produce, each year, 4 times as many certificated teachers as there are openings.
In a discussion with a legislator he said "if we do not raise standards how can we get more money"? It is all about money for Educrats it has, unfortunately, nothing to do with what kids need to provide for their future.
I would appreciate Common Dreams present the other, and real, side of the scam!
