Government collected tax dollars are being spent to fund public and private non-profit entities that provide minority students with the excellent education that public education failed to provide.
The average salary for a non-profit executive director is $106,523.00 according to Payscale.
Our federal government utilizes tax dollars collected from its citizens to support a system of education that promotes and perpetuates discrimination and segregation. There should be no “minorities” in an America that boasts “equality” for all of its citizens.
Our federal taxes support a workforce whose sole purpose is to recover the lost gifts and talents of predominantly “minority” students attesting to the discriminatory and segregationist policies and practices within our current system of education.
When we provide All of America’s children with a free and public, excellent, experiential education that is founded in the Arts and seeks to discover, develop, and direct the gifts and talents of All members of their community in a safe, nurturing school environment that acknowledges and respects the diverse cultures that make up the fabric of our nation, delivered by knowledgeable, caring adults that role model and engage students in thought provoking dialogue and hands-on activities that stimulate and foster critical thinking skills and personal and civic pride in themselves and their fellow Americans, we will be able to re-direct education tax dollars towards the children who deserve to benefit from them.
We must work together, as United States citizens to change the language and purpose of education.
