Nail, meet hammer.
If there is any coherent message that can be gleaned from the Occupy Wall Street “movement”, it is that our system of public and higher education can now be declared a total and complete failure. The fact that there exists no accountability at any level of our Education-Industrial Complex is perfectly clear for all to see. It seems fair to say that responsibility for this can be laid squarely at the feet of the teacher’s unions and their members who have perpetuated an economic structure in education and a curricular agenda that has been allowed to defy gravity for 40 years.
Suffice it to say that every time you hear education activists talk about spending money on children, they are lying through their teeth. That money is for teachers; make no mistake.
Put simply, they exist to ensure that government jobs once obtained are inviolate without any accounting for performance or competency.
So a child that makes it through that system without dropping out shows up on a college campus totally unprepared for collegiate level academics finds him/herself in a psych, sociology, history, or literature class … …Waiting for them there is a tenured hack with the full panoply of liberal/socialist agenda items infused into their course who sees his mission as one of evangelism rather than education.
You need to read the rest for yourself, it only gets better. Total Failure.
