In the most recent GS4 blogpost Mark Hare writes:
“But the job of public education is to develop structures, policies and strategies that result in nearly every child—90 percent or better—graduating on time and ready for work, work training or higher education.”
It is the “job” of our elected officials in education to develop structures, policies and strategies that will result in serving the “intent” of education, to create an informed and knowledgeable citizenry that is able to responsibly govern themselves.
It is this persistence of propaganda by respected individuals that maintains the separatist, segregationist, and racist system of education that distracts and deters those who believe that our current system must be revised.
These respected community leaders continue to follow the “hedgehogs” who want to maintain a “middle class” belief that because they are financially “better off” they are somehow “better” than others who do not share their social standing. For this reason we allow our children to be enslaved to a system of education that purposefully supports the ignorance and corporate control of the American public.
These well meaning “middle class” education advocates have yet to understand that All children, regardless of their parent’s financial prowess, are gifted and talented and deserve to be educated to become respectful, caring, responsible, adults who will recognize and respect the gifts and talents that all of us possess.
To believe in and support a class system is anti-American.
To believe in and support a system of education that maintains and encourages a class system in America is inhumane.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” — The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
We must provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that will put an end to human inequality.
