I don’t pay much attention to the domesticated, controlled opposition voices like Ben Shapiro. Or the shout show hosts like Crowder. I favour the crime thinkers that are so intelligent, they can say what they think and see, and present it in a way that the scolds and censors can only fume and seethe about it. I dunno where where Matt Walsh fits in with all that… but he hit it out of the park with this.
For sure… we gotta keep tabs on the public school teachers. There’s just too many perverts, socialists, cretins and pooch screwers among their ranks to trust them. But…you could watch the kids too, and see what your own little bundle of joy was doing in class.
I hate public school teachers. I had no use for them as a kid, and as an adult I’d bust their unions and fire the lot just for gits and shiggles. But…in all truth, that is a damned tough job. The kids are only half their battle; the parents are the other half. Teachers are only part of the reason our public schools have failed.
Homeschool your kids.ReplyDelete
You will spend less time homeschooling them than you will deprogramming them after gubmintskool every day.
That is ultimately the best decision. I heard that two million kids dropped out of public schools and given the source... I'd bet the actual number is higher.Delete

New Jersey teachers union condemns parents as 'extremist' in new ad
I've been opposed to compulsory education since I was subjected to the dictatorship of the penguins in the 1960's, and have never since seen reason to rescind the sentiment. They had to teach to the lowest common denominator; as a result I was bored out of my skull all those years. I wasn't all that much smarter than the rest, but they kept telling me that I was, and as a defenseless little kid I believed them and behaved accordingly.ReplyDelete
As an undergrad I acquired a classical liberal arts education, and I will always treasure the very real education I got. It took a long time for my redneck roots to come out, but boy howdy, they have with a vengeance. I used to admire John Stuart Mill, but in recent years I've come to see what a depraved, twisted SOB he really was. Likewise for those paragons of the education establishment like John Dewey and William James.
Nowadays I'm a certified cranky old coot and will call BS whenever it's presented to me which is every day of course.
If you have grandkids, chip in some of your fart around time and help with their homeschooling. It's easy.ReplyDelete
I think that is where this is all heading, A.Delete
Some years back I actually tried this. I pretended to be a parent, new to the general area, and was trying to decide where to settle so as to get my children a decent education. The question I eventually got around to was, "Is it possible for me to observe a class in session?"ReplyDelete
Not just no, but hell no.
As to just why this was impossible, the speaker would cite security, then start prevaricating. There was one exception.
Toledo, Ohio has a hole in the doughnut, and that hole is the Village of Ottawa Hills. I called the school system and did the usual song and dance, then popped the old question.
"We've never done it, but it sound like a great idea!" said the lady, with enthusiasm.
That's right, enthusiasm. Toledo, Sylvania, and the surrounding areas have public schools that are hiding something - poor quality. When I went to school in Sylvania, I hated it. I mean hated it with a passion. We had corporal punishment, and many teachers enjoyed it too much. We had stupid teachers, ignorant teachers, teachers who just didn't give a damn, and a very few good teachers. We had one who I remember vividly who was, I swear, a bona-fide sadist. He's dead now, likely burning in Hell, although I suppose I hope not.
The idea here is that school teachers claim they want the parents involved (more parental involvement!) and in the same breath they refuse to allow any parent to audit their class - even via video. Imagine, the parents can actually see what little Johnny is up to, and what the instructor is trying to teach him, and how, and maybe why.
I predict that in four weeks the student body would be cut by half, as the parents who even remotely care about their children find alternatives. Home school is one. Private school is another.
Saw a brilliant drawing by an elementary school student for the question what is your favorite part about school, he drew a bus with leaving as the answer.ReplyDelete
