“Fairport CSD Betsy DeVos Resolution… good reasons to just say no…” which is a fifteen point resolution that states that the duly elected School Board of Fairport will “actively and forcefully” oppose the policies and policy makers who “stray from supporting and furthering the true mission of public education.”
The Fairport school district has, since the inception of the common core, actively and forcefully opposed the policies of our education policy makers. This is because Fairport is a successful school district that is supported by its community. Its school board is made up of concerned members of the Fairport community who were elected by the people of Fairport.
This is not true of the Rochester City School District or any of the other “Big Five” districts whose boards are paid an annual salary to comply with state and federal mandates.
It is because the RCSD is a poor and failing district that we cannot expect them to follow the lead of Fairport in actively and forcefully opposing any policy or policy maker that can and most probably will, refuse them funding for non-compliance.
This is how the “hedgehogs” maintain control over the masses of individuals at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid of America.
Fairport is part of the “middle-class” that is supported by the “upper-class” so that they can pay for the programs that support the “poor” that feed the coffers of the elite. The “middle-class” feels empowered while the poor remain powerless with the real power residing in the hands of the elite who control the government and the people through their system of economics.
Fairport’s active and forceful opposition only serves Fairport’s children and there is nothing wrong with that.
However, until we provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Art based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their natural gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged, forceful adults, there will be no true freedom and justice for anyone, in Fairport, in America, or in the world.
