From 2003 until today more than six to seven million federal education dollars have been funneled to private agencies to end segregation in public schools. Recent reports say that public schools are more segregated now than they were prior to the Civil Rights Movement.
Our current system of education promotes segregation and discrimination by forcing the standardization of our children through the use of the common core curriculum and charter school proliferation.
The “hedgehogs” are profiting from the segregation, discrimination, and hatred inherent in our current system of education.
When we provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their individual gifts and talents, private desegregation centers won’t be necessary.
