Ignorance: Lack of knowledge, education, or awareness. (Merriam Webster)
“Be careful to leave your sons well instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant.” Epictetus
“The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.” Maximilien Robespierre
With only one new candidate elected in the Democratic Primary for school board, it is unlikely that any change will occur within the RCSD.
Most sitting members of the Board as well as Superintendent Vargas believe that it is concentrated poverty that impedes its ability to educate our children. However, it is not poverty but ignorance that maintains and perpetuates the failure of our children within the current system of education.
Our sitting school board leaders want us to believe that they are acting in the best interest of our children when they are acting in the best interest of the budget they are charged with maintaining in order to insure the unconscionably high salaries of ineffective and inefficient administrators.
It is not lack of money that remands individuals trapped in large urban centers to an inadequate education, it is the lack of education that our country must provide every one of its citizens.
Using our current system of education under common core control, our government perpetuates the ignorance that reduces the American public to a voiceless majority allowing the “hedgehogs” control of the economy and our children’s educational future.
Keeping the people ignorant and subjective to a controlling government insures the “hedgehogs” of their corporate profits. An ignorant populous allows those considered politically knowledgeable to run our government making the average American a non-participant in government operation and legislation.
When citizens re-elect leaders who have continually shown they are unable to effectively and efficiently lead our school district out of the failure we have endured for decades, it is proof of the concentrated ignorance that our current system of education fosters.
Concentrated ignorance can only be eliminated by providing every child in American with an excellent education.
