Wikipedia states, “Benjamin McLane Spock was an American pediatrician whose book Baby and Child Care, published in 1946, is one of the best-sellers of all time. Throughout its first 52 years, Baby and Child Care was the second-best-selling book, next to the Bible.
Dr. Spock had no children of his own yet was responsible for educating a nation on how best to raise their children. Generations later we see the results of his philosophy, children who are lost and confused, without discipline, hope, or faith.
“William Henry “Bill” Gates III is an American business magnate, investor, computer programmer, inventor and philanthropist. Gates is the former chief executive and chairman of Microsoft, the world’s largest personal-computer software company. . . He is consistently ranked in the Forbes list of the world’s wealthiest people . . .” Wikipedia
Bill Gates has no formal experience in the field of education yet has influenced and is instrumental in directing the course of education in America with his money.
The Shreveporttimes.com reports, Mayors from across the country will meet for an education meeting, a day-long meeting which will include a conversation with Bill Gates. “According to a statement the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation issued Tuesday, mayors also will discuss implementing Common Core state standards during the meeting.”
Assembling an education committee that does not include members of the community who strongly oppose mayoral control and favor changing our current system of education so that it concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of all of our children while meeting with Gates and other mayors from across the country who wish to capitalize on proffered funding, it becomes clear that Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren lacks the experience necessary to guide this community to the path of educational success for our children.
Experience has shown us that mayoral control, common core, and Gates foundation money all lead to the educational failure of our children.
As a community we must stand together to save our children from the inexperienced decision making that has led them down the path of educational failure for decades.
