The decades of solid entrenchment of the massive public schooling here in the United States, is experiencing some cracking and crumbling in some areas. Money problems from staggering cost in all 50 states. Reports are the annual cost to tax-payers is 100 billion dollars for 50 states. Here in the state of Georgia alone, schooling costs over eight billion anually.
It has been my position for a long time, nothing is really going to improve and turn around in this Nation until the school system as it exists today is totally dismantled.
The con-game of political government in full swing, dominating with spin keeping the attention of the American people on the foreign terrorist, Usama Bin Laden, while the important news of what’s happening in schools across this country receives little notice. Here in Georgia, a news cycle of one adversity relating to the schools barely passes until there’s another. News about what teachers are doing to students, what students are doing to teachers and one another, money fraud scheme stories relating to school employees, bad report card issues, and etc.
How many saw this recent news item about reforms in Detroit, Michigan? “Under Governor Rick Snyder’s corporate martial law that he signed back in March, state-appointed emergency financial managers like Bob Bobb now have unilateral power to dissolve public unions, seize and sell assets, SHUT DOWN SCHOOLS, and eliminate services, if they feel its appropriate to help a town avoid bankruptcy.”
A report of Detroit’s school system, states a staggering $327 million budget deficit, but other reports of an additional $100 million added to that. Calls for schools to shut down and convert to charter school control. A system many believe is privatizing schools, charter schools are advertised as privately run and publicly financed.
This rationale is like trying to cure alcoholism by giving the drunk more money for liquor. It’s propagandi. The root problem with the current school is the immorality of thievery it is based upon. That is a hundred billion dollar a year tax bill. Taxes by definition are an involuntary relinquishment of one’s property [money], hence stealing. Therefore, there’s no way under the sun one can have a moral system of teaching children based upon the immorality of thievery.
Therefore this latest ploy by the state, federal and local school boards, the charter schools as a solution is hog-wash, because the money to finance is still extracted from the American people via a gun or threat of a gun. This idea perpetrated from the top down and bottom up, that privatizing stolen loot is the answer to the school problem is ludicrous. Whether it’s city, county, state or federal government, once it has its hands on money collected, it doles and controls, no matter the claims of privatizing anything.
The trillions this government is in debt is the self-evidence of political government handling money. How anyone can buy into this latest game plan, the answer to the school problen of this country being “privatizing public schools with public money” is downright stupid. When are we going to realize that getting off the backs of others is the only rational starting point to change the school system? And shouldn’t be so difficult, inasmuch as it could be accomplished “bottom up” with local school boards, elected by local residents.
We have been so propagandized by the jack-hammer rhetoric, we believe the lie that children are being educated in the so-called “public school system,” when such is not the case. They are being indoctrinated into the tenets of Marxist socialism. I never cease to be amazed that seemingly decent, hard-working, charitable, church-going parents, have no qualms about dressing their child up to catch a bus to take them to a place to sit in a classroom, to be indoctrinated into the basic tenets taught by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Hitler and others of their mindset, from textbooks filled with socialistic ideas. Don’t listen to what I’m trying to tell you, check out the information in your child’s textbook and learn what’s going on firsthand. Then ask your child what it knows about the Principles this nation was founded upon, that is self-government of individual Freedom, and listen carefully.
Then listen to the TV program “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” five days a week, for further enlightenment relative to what your child knows and does not know.
The conditions as reported about happenings in Michigan, are an eye-opener. A state once the center of the auto industry, recipients of federal bail-outs, now the news about a $200 million dollar rail system being considered. What happened to all those cars they built, now calling for a massive transit system, everyone in this country will be paying for. A state facing bankruptcy, a school system facing bankruptcy, an auto business the federal government gave all that bail-out money to, now considering a $200 million dollar rail system. Reportedly, one person said “…Is how Detroit will become gentrified. This is how corporate interests and developers will get to have wholesale control of our towns, our land, and theres nothing we can do about it.”
I don’t know about you, as a reader of my articles, but I had to look up the word “gentrified” in the dictionary, because I had never heard the term. It’s there under “gentry.”
One of our founding fathers, John Adams, said: “Children should be educated and instructed in the Principles of Freedom.” I know of no child in today’s public school system instructed in the Principles of Freedom, do you?
The great English philosopher and political theorist, John Locke [1632 – 1704], stated: “The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.”
