And Now Your Children … Hand Them Over, Please
George Will has written a scathing column on the nation's failed public schools that from K-12, and into "higher learning", have become factories of propaganda. Sounds like someplace else we are very familiar with, no?
The real vocation of some people entrusted with delivering primary and secondary education is to validate this proposition: The three R’s — formerly reading, ’riting and ’rithmetic — now are racism, reproduction and recycling. Especially racism. Consider Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction. It evidently considers “instruction” synonymous with “propaganda,” which in the patois of progressivism is called “consciousness-raising.”
And Americans wonder why their generous K-12 financing (higher per pupil than all but three of the 34 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development nations) has done so little to improve reading, math and science scores. Read in full...
Now, in a network promo touting the Maoist mentality of Lean "Forward", Mz. Harris-Perry insists children/kids (they are only given personhood when the left needs them to be more than "things" in their heart-tugging "It's for the children" propaganda) belong to the community, and not so much to their parents and family.
Given MSNBC's proclivity for deeming any-given word as a racist dog-whistle, I contend "community" = "collective" = "State" ... and I am not the only one reading such propaganda into this.
From what I can see on her Wiki page she has atleast one child (daughter). I'm sure Mz. Harris-Perry would be perfectly willing and welcoming to give up her parental rights and just allow the "community" (see: 'state') assume total control and dictates over her child.
And 'word' to Mz. H-P ... We have (and continue to) spent billions and billions and billions on public 'education', and much, if not ALL, has been unchecked for legitimacy and efficiency. The public education system in this nation is far, far more "broken" than our healthcare system, financial system, and election system. We have a certain percentage of "teachers" that are from the dumbed-down public education system generation now teaching yet another generation of children who, in some cases, have been relinquished from their parents' responsibility and involvement, and the "communities" where they roam free are irresponsible and failed as well. See Chicago and Detroit, or any inner city where democrat "progressive" leadership has been deeply rooted for generations, and where federal taxpayer dollars have been endlessly dumped. And as with the "collective" mentality, the whole is judged on the few failures, and action taken accordingly on everyone.
"The personal life is dead ... The private life is dead..."
What could go wrong?
