The truly educated become conscious. They become self-aware. They do not lie to themselves. They do not pretend that fraud is moral or that corporate greed is good. They do not claim that the demands of the marketplace can morally justify the hunger of children or denial of medical care to the sick. They do not throw 6 million families from their homes as the cost of doing business.Chris Hedges
Hey...I have an idea! Let's not defund education. Perhaps that will give us a chance to turn this ship around before it tilts on its axis.
And let's support teachers who want to (and know how to) teach kids--not just teach kids how to take tests.
I've always been a supporter of public education. I used to be a high school teacher. I have many friends and relatives who are in the profession.
How about we pay them what they are worth--especially since they hold the future in their trust.
I'm just sayin'....
