Duncan came out of an educational system that continues to be corrupted by the Chicago corporate machine - the same "privatization" machine whose ideologues include the former Obama Chief of Staff, now Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel.
The "revolving door" of private, unaccountable corporations into and out of our national and state governments shows a glaring disconnect to Main Street America. Our representative two-party system is not owned by The People anymore, but now by a relative few billionaires, who by the decree of an activist Supreme Court, were given the "Citizens United" decision to further their race to the bottom - a race toward an unholy alliance of state and corporation..
No wonder a "fix" is needed a.s.a.p. to our public schools! The rigged electoral system has been corporatized to protect corporate profits, at the expense of corporatizing our schools, An even more alarming thread that can be also argued here, too, is that our Planet and Life itself are threatened by corporate giants.
The already rich want more than a new yacht, now. They are going for slavery - over all of us who don't tow their line obediently. America's rightful owners, We The People, are now waking-up, but perhaps not soon enough! We are a friendly, loving and gigantically large number of human beings, who can right what has been usurped, quickly.
Our Department of Education has become a deplorable because all children have been left behind. Being left are the sense of happiness and a fun future under blue clear skies without the Bush-Obama mumbojumbo!
